Corgi Toys 1102 Euclid Tractor & Blade
Euclid TC-12 Tractor with Dozer Blade by Corgi Toys, No. 1102. Very near mint/boxed. Pale lime green issue. With upper and lower packing pieces.
This ‘Major Pack’ model from Corgi was issued between 1958-62. Pale lime green finish with black tracks which run easily and show no signs of wear.
This item looks as if it has spent more than 50 years years tucked away in its box. Very close to complete transfers throughout. Fine silky paint finish and bright metal parts including the base. Gives the impression of unsold, old shop stock.
Close inspection reveals a small area of discolouration near one of the hydraulic rams (probably caused by oily residue). A few minor marks besides (probably as-made).
The lift-off lid box has attractive full colour picture which adds to the appeal. Minor edge rubbing and a small seam split. Box base has a little shelf grubbiness. Period dollar price is stamped. It comes with the both card packing pieces.
Although not strictly military, it is often included as part of a military collection too.
