Notes

Always a sought-after set from Corgi – this is the second issue from 1964 which includes the Giraffe Truck rather than the Booking Office.(Other minor differences too).
The attractive, highly detailed pictorial scene card box is complete and bright. Light corner wear, a few small stains and a small discoloured area on the box base. Period U.S. shop label on a lid side. Light wear besides.

Lift off the lid and the original white card packing piece is still present – nearly always discarded.
