SUF­FOLK, 20 FE­BRU­ARY Read­ers of a cer­tain age will re­mem­ber when Match­box Toys rep­re­sented pocket size mod­els for pocket money prices. Some still are, but re­ally col­lectable ones will fetch prices out of all pro­por­tion to their diminu­tive size.

A good ex­am­ple is the Su­per­fast No. 12D Citroën CX Es­tate pre-pro­duc­tion model, es­ti­mated at £100-150 in Lacy Scott & Knight’s Toys and Col­lec­tors Mod­els Sale at Bury St Ed­munds, Suf­folk, this Satur­day (20 Fe­bru­ary).

To the unini­ti­ated it might not look that spe­cial, with its red body and bare metal base with in­com­plete copy­right date, but just watch it go!
