Went to the thrift store with my wife and it the toys and games section, I came across this guy.
A 1988 Matchbox Rover Sterling in perfect condition. The way this thrift store does their toys, like most, is to bag up several and sell the whole lot. I saw this little guy sitting on a shelf all by himself so I looked through the other bags for any more casts but came up empty. I wasn’t about to let it get destroyed so it came home with me. For 49 whole cents!
Not bad considering examples of lower quality are on the Bay of e’s for $6.
Thanks for looking and happy hunting!
