Hatra Shovel Orange and Yellow Pictures

Postby Lionel5344 » Tue May 09, 2017 12:05 pm

I picked this up with few other matchbox cars that came with a small toy train collection. I'm told there is some collectable interest in the Yellow and Orange variation of this model. Can someone enlighten me as to its story?

There is interest in this model. Most of course are all yellow or all orange. Apparently they had some leftover parts and LESNEY never wasted parts if they could make a sellable toy.

This seems to be a hard to find model. No idea on current value. This is a model that some are faking and trying to sell to make a quick buck. So a look at the rivet that combines the pieces would be a good idea to see if it is identical to a normal variation.

Thank you. I was thinking the Rivet should be the same color as the shovel. I have and Orange Cab and Yellow Shovel. The Rivet appears to be unpainted. Is that a clue to anyone?

Thanks
