Amazingly not the most expensive set I have seen sold.

I have 2 1/2 sets in my loft, I'm hoping to sell them when I retire & buy a my own tropical island.

That needle is just an early Morris one, nothing fancy at all.

Didn't the ones used in the works cars have a white tip, not a red one?

Well I asked the vendor a question :lol: and recieved this reply

"Thank you for your email. Yes you are correct, the white tip needles were used on 'SOME' of the 'WORKS' cooper's. You obviously know details of these cars but I guess GRX 309D driven by the late Graham Hill has slipped by you. If you have seen this car in person, as I have, or view any images on either the web or issue March 2005 of MiniWorld magazine you will clearly see the red tipped needle. There is a chance I suppose the car is not 100% acurate, I'll pass on your comments to Tony Arnold, 12th June at Beaulieu."
