Corgi Gift Set 1 Farm Set. Scarce. Near mint/boxed.
This item is no longer for sale, price for reference only.
A scarce and delightful two-piece Gift Set first issued during 1966. It comprises:
1) Ford 5000 Super Major Tractor, in light blue and grey with intact and complete chrome chimney etc., grey metal steering wheel, complete transfer on one side, very nearly complete on the other (couple of small top edge nicks). Otherwise difficult to find fault with this tractor. Complete with driver.
2) Beast Carrier is complete with delicate plastic netting (one tiny break) and four calves. Some marking to the original yellow finish mostly to the inside bed of the trailer (probably due to a poor casting, or perhaps due to the calves hooves!). Usual paint loss to the tow hook.
Pictorial card plinth looks very crisp, fresh and strongly-coloured, with none of the expected wear and tear at wheel slots. Both pull-out tabs are in place at both ends too. Lovely bright colours make this a very attractive backdrop for display.
The pictorial card box is a very nice example, bright and clean with vivid colours. A little wear and tear to one end in particular (couple of small edge tears at end flaps). Trace of old sellotape at one end and a faint tea/coffee stain at another end flap. Minor handling wear besides. Still presents very well. No graffiti.
