1-75 VARIATIONS

DAVE GARRETT COLLECTION





I have produced a hard copy catalogue of the variations information below, listing over 1,000 variations with 300+ photos
For information on the catalogue, feedback and purchase details click here: 1-75 Series Variations Catalogue

1 - 75 VARIATIONS

To help identify the many variations of Matchbox/Lesney models I have mainly used the excellent "Matchbox Toys" by Nancy Schiffer as well as Charlie Mack's "Collecting MATCHBOX Regular Wheel Years 1947 - 1969". Both books are recommended for anyone interested in more information.

An early variation resource was "MATCHBOX" 1-75 SERIES REGULAR WHEELS by Harold L. Colpitts, President of A.I.M. 1983. This detailed many variations not listed in other books.

For detailed listing of the variation numbers I have used Michael J Stannard's "MATCHBOX" 1-75 SERIES 1953-1969 Collector's Catalogue, considered to be the ultimate reference book. Though out of print copies can be found on eBay and book store.

Geoffrey Leake's website Geoffrey Leake-Matchbox has pictures of some of the casting variations plus a great deal of information.

Where possible I have detailed the casting variations but not always included them in the listing numbers.

I am currently working on a hard copy version of this variations list adding photos from my collection

All errors are my responsibility and I welcome any additional information, advice or comments
