MOY Harrah collection Reno USA

Postby Dan777 » Fri Mar 10, 2017 2:43 am

Hello everyone,
I have a question about some Yesteryear models I have seen listed on ebay. The models have this stamped on the bottom: by courtesy of Harrah collection Reno. USA I have limited knowledge about the Yesteryear series so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have not heard of this myself but as its stamped on several different models I would guess that they may be code 3 models. Do you have pictures cause that would help narrow it down for you

I tried to upload some pics but the file is too large. I adjusted my camera and even a 322 KB pic is too large! I can not get the file any smaller. Maybe there is another way??

best way to show pics is to get a Photobucket account and then post the link within your post.

Code 3 models are generally considered to be those that have been changed or modified outside of the original factory without the permission of the manufacturer such as Matchbox.

Code 1 are all models made and completed within the factory

Code 2 are models that are made within the factory and then modified by a third party with the permission of the original manufacturer
