Corgi Gift Set 1 Tractor & Beast Carrier
Farm Set by Corgi Toys, Gift Set No. 1. Near mint plus - very, very near mint/boxed, with colourful plinth. With packing piece. From The Pennsylvanian Collection.
A delightful two-piece Gift Set first issued during 1966. It comprises:
1) Ford 5000 Super Major Tractor, in light blue and grey with a complete exhaust stack. Bright steering wheel, complete transfer on one side, near-microscopic nick to the other. With driver.
Chrome chimney stack has minor rubbing. No Ford label head-on. Barely a mark to the tractor.
2) Beast Carrier is finished in vibrant deep yellow with red plastic wheels and as-new original tyres. Complete with intact delicate plastic netting and four calves slotted into their ‘straw’ card stand. Virtually mint condition.
Pictorial card plinth is crisp, fresh and strongly-coloured, looking barely handled. Both pull-out tabs are in place at both ends too (number 1 printed on one of them, original). Lovely bright colours make this a very attractive backdrop for display. No wheel slot tears either!
Card packing piece included.
The pictorial card box is complete and bright, showing light age/handling wear only.
