Look What I've Dug Up

Here's a charity shop find that I got for 99p. A Matchbox Weatherill Hydraulic digger that was made by Lesney during the 1950s.

It's obviously seen better days, with some of the paint missing, but in quite good condition for a toy that's nearly 60 years old.

If it was mint and boxed, then it would be worth £40 or more, but in it's present condition, it may only be worth a fiver. Still it's a nice model to have in my collection, which incidentally isn't that big.
