Item details

4 British Diecast Toy Company Catalogs. 1969 Matchbox USA Edition, 1969 Corgi Toys Diecast Models, 1970 Britians Scale Models and 1971 Dinky Diecast Toys.

Out of my collection. Homage to the impact of the British Toy Companies in the 1960-70's. Plus am listing these after noticing the slew of Holiday catalogs coming in the mail lately. Had me thinking about the interesting subtle if not major differences in the toy catalogs and making back then and now. Selected these four since I think together they do give a nice sampling of the British diecast toy makers back then.

Catalogs in good condition. Catalogs range from 7.25 x 5 Inches (19x13cm) to 5.5 x 4.25 Inches (14x11cm). Two catalogs has slightly more age wear however all are intact with no missing pages or damage. Colors and graphics clear on all, pages are attached to the spine. Diecast toy cars except for Britians catalog who tended toward a wider range of products.

1969 Matchbox Lesney USA Edition: 47 pages complete. Has faint front page corner sticker outline otherwise clean and clear. Interior has ink pen check marks in the checklist boxes for the models. Overall in good condition. Fine reference for vintage Matchbox Lesney model lines.

1969 Corgi Toys: Highly collectible catalog especially if your a Corgi diecast collector-harder to find and one of my favorite catalog. Front is of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Movie Diecast Car which is a more rarer Corgi diecast collectible. Has numerous listings of all their popular TV, Movie and Character models that made Corgi so well known amongst kids and collectors! Some age mildew spots on the lower front page. Interior pages has no wear or marks, has original attached checklist (often missing). Great collectible catalog!

1970 Britians Toy Models. BritiansToy has a long history of British toy making. Highly collectibe playsets ranging from farm, zoo, garden themes etc as well as the very popular miniature figures. Excellent catalog condition, practically untouched condition with crisp pages and graphics. More sought after catalog.

1971 Dinky Toys. The first and oldest British Diecast Toy Car Companies dating back to the 1930's. Almost minimal use or wear catalog, clear and crisp. The '71 catalog is a good example of the rivarly and competition between Corgi, Dinky and Matchbox. Also includes Dinky's introduction of more character movie cars such as Dinky's Pink Panther, Lady Penelope;s Fab I or Captain Scarlet. A fine Toy Diecast Car reference and history collectible!

Returns & exchanges

For Domestic orders the time limit for refund/returns is 21 days. This is to avoid return request months after a purchase. Also the optimal time to complete a refund is within 30 days. This is partly due to the etsy time limit in offering the most simplists way of direct purchase refunding within the sold listing. It can get more complicated and requires more time and effort once the 30 days has expired. In addition why this is important is I as the seller still have incurred listing and selling fees once the 30 days lapses which normally is not reversible after the 30 days, or at least much more complicated to do so.

Please keep the 21 day time refund limit in mind when purchasing. Return shipping cost paid by buyer. A partial refund may be possible depending on damage or for any unusual reason for returning. For International buyers--please buy with extra caution and care. International refund/returns is strongly discouraged without very obvious or unusual situations.

International orders: Returns are much more limited for International orders- I strongly suggest to be certain about the item you want before buying. If unavoidable and necessary contact me within days not weeks after receiving. No returns/refund after 7 days of obtaining. International returns can be complicated by time and higher costs, All return shipping cost is the buyers responsibility and not part of any refund or credit. Refunds will not be given till the item is received back and in original sold condition.
