Vintage Lesney Matchbox Karrier Refuse Collector (1957) #38-A MINT! Made England

This is a Lesney Matchbox Karrier Refuse Collector. It is “Series No. 38.” Charlie Mack number 38-A. It was issued in 1957, and was made inEngland. This vehicle is from the RegularWheels series. It is variety number 4. It has a silver-gray body, no windows, yellow “Cleansing Department” labels, and gray plastic wheels. This vehicle is in MINT condition, with absolutely no visible signs of wear. Hard to believe in a 55-year-old toy, but true (see photos). You won’t find one better than this. This is close to Museum quality.

I'm selling the last part of my vintage Lesney Matchbox collection, which has been undisturbed a climate-controlled environment for thirty years. My parents bought me these cars at the Buffalo/Niagara Falls (NY) Toy Shows in 1980, 1981, and 1982. I played with these vehicles only a few times (and I was always very careful with my toys!) and only inside, before putting them away semi-permanently. The vehicles I am selling now have been moved (by me personally) only twice since my Mom carefully packaged them up in 1983. They were moved once in 1992, and again in 2006. You won't find Matchbox cars in better condition than these unless they're still in their original box!

Shipping to all U. S. locations is FREE. All my Matchbox cars will be bubble-wrapped and shipped in a very sturdy cardboard box,
