In brown with cream roof, I think this is one of the most attractive early Lesney Yesteryear models. The decals advertise W. & R. Jacob & Co Ltd, famous to this day for their biscuits, and give the model a real 'period' feel. This is an earlier issue with silver radiator grille and surround, and the wheels are on crimped axles. These plain metal disc wheels are unique in the Yesteryear range.

This one is excellent, with just a few small marks on the roof. The decals are very nearly perfect; there is a tiny nibble in the edge of one 'W'. The axles are bright and rust-free. The type A box is complete, but has some wear to the flaps; one end flap is partly detached. There is also some creasing on the plain sides.
