Has some minor paint chips, but for its age and rarity. One axle support is loose from the frame side, as the fixing has failed.
Slight casting dint to the rear of the truck. But formed in the making of the casting. Rear mud guards are very slightly out of line. Box has some ageing, but better than most.Ballon, has a minor dint as in the photo. But very minor in my opinion. This is made from lead, so toxic. So must be handled with care, and safety.
So over-all a very fine example of a original lead toy. The item "Britains Miniature 1855 Barrage Balloon & Dodge Truck Set" is in sale since Friday, September 10, 2021. This item is in the category "Toys & Games\Toy Soldiers\Britains".
