No& Milk float

Is it genuine or is it fake?

No& Milk float

Hi guys
I picked up this one in a job lot. Before I sell it on I want to know if it is genuine or not as my knowledge on regular wheels is not great and if I remember Nick said it was a fairly rare one. If you need better pics let me know. Came in a B type box with a label saying 7A-1 Code 8v, Box B5, Horse Drawn Milk Float, Orange,Silver Driver & Crates,org. advert, no shaft side braces, DC, GPW
Absolutely mint apart from 2 chips on one arm of the drawbar and a few miniscule flea bites.

Mick, I've done a tiny teeny little bit of editing on your pictures, hope you don't mind.

if genuine, the driver's jacket/coat should be hand-painted, whilst the crates should show evidence of being mask-sprayed.

I can see slight feathering edge on one crate only, other 3 seem to be almost a perfect spray to the edges - ok found the loupe and not perfect edges so definately mask sprayed. Driver has thin paint in the middle on front and a bit sparse around the rear neck. I would say genuine so will sell as that and if any query will cover it. I'm always a bit wary saying rare model as I don't know enough about them but I think this one will be ok. Also came with No. 5 bus but it has no labels or number plate recess - is this ok as almost as mint as this one and boxed as well.

One of my all time favorite models and this one is a beautiful example of that difficult to find variation. From my examination of the photos, it certainly looks to be authentic.
