1)Corgi Toys 452 Commer Dropside Lorry.
An all original example in bright red (distinctly different from the deeper red version also issued by Corgi) and cream with bright flat spun wheels, bright baseplate (spare wheel fitted), window glazing.
Looks rarely handled – hard to resist its charm!
Occasional little rub at some raised points at the sides (probably caused by box contact).
The blue and yellow picture box is complete and vividly-coloured. Grubbiness and wear caused during storage. Period price label at an end flap. Corgi Club Membership Form.
2) A smart cream and deep red finish on this second issue Corgi trailer, with a cast drawbar and shaped spun wheels.
Occasional little mark at an exposed edge.
The second issue blue and yellow picture box is complete, bright and crisp. Small area of surface loss at an end flap. Barely any wear besides.
