This is a scarce and desirable Gift Set from the Pinder range of French Dinky models.
The two-part set comprises:
i) French Dinky 536 Peugeot 404 finished in Pinder livery (in red and yellow) with bright chromed concave wheels and a striking Pinder Circus hoarding on the roof. Hardly a mark to the paint finish but if you study extra-closely, you may find a couple of small touch-ins.
ii) French Dinky 564 Caravelair Armagnac 420 Caravan in Pinder livery with bright and clean original Pinder labels at both sides. A couple of minor marks away from mint and a little edge ruffle to one of the paper labels.
The yellow plinth in which both models are placed is complete and brightly-coloured. Couple of small tears, due to movement of the caravan.
In its still-sealed pack are the often-missing road sign, bear and unapplied number plates .
Crisp clean leaflet as well as the delightful colourful poster.
The pictorial end flap box is complete and brightly-coloured throughout. Repaired end flap tear. Minor wear besides.
Packing piece has a couple of pieces of tape added at some time to strengthen. Surface paper part-tear. A little wear otherwise.
