As is so often the case with these high profile Dinky commercials, there are a few little retouches to the paint. Not visible without a magnifying glass. Note the lettering is somewhat lighter on one side of the tank.
The striped pictorial box with italicised print impresses with strong colours on fresh, card. Rusty staples. Light wear.
