Corgi Toys 503 Circus Giraffe Transporter
Circus Giraffe Transporter with Giraffes by Corgi Toys, No. 503. Very near mint/boxed, with mother & baby giraffes. So SCARCE late issue in a WINDOW BOX, model with TRUCK CAST WHEELS. From The Pennsylvanian Collection.
From the popular range of circus models issued between 1964-70, this is the very scarce late issue with truck-style cast wheels (usual issue has spun wheels). Paint finish is virtually mint; this is an exceptional find. Note that both wing mirrors are in place complete with both reflective strips. Bright, fresh and complete “CHIPPERFIELDS CIRCUS” labels on both sides and, of course – two giraffes (one mother and baby)!
Green-blue plastic back (light-affected). Red paint finish is vibrant.
Rare to find in the window box. Intact original cellophane. Card is bright, clean and crisp. Couple of tiny tears. Tiny fleck of surface loss. Small area of sticky residue nearby.
