Display units

At the moment we have just this one piece, I am not sure of the exact age of this one but a nearly identical piece is shown on the front of the Matchbox 40 year book, this one differs slightly in that it has the price of 2/4 printed on it which was two shillings and four pence (12p). The price of 2/4 would date it to around 1969 but the vehicles shown on the header would date the design to the early 60's so it was probably kept in production for several years. This one was actually made by Lesney, the majority of the few surviving display units were made by the Bronner Corp in the U.S.
