Morestone Miniatures or "Esso Petrol Pump" series 1-4

Number 1 was the AA Motorcycle & Sidecar which consisted of a black motorcycle, yellow sidecar, A seperate khaki rider with black gloves and flesh coloured face and a seperate yellow windscreen frame, The carrier on the lid of the toolbox was picked out in black and although it has an opening toolbox lid I would not recomend you try to open it as it breaks off easily,

The spoked wheels were unpainted die cast metal mounted on steel axles with crimped ends and a third axle pin helped hold it all together. It was made from 1956-58

Value approximately 40-60
