from " The Ron Giannone
Estate" Franklin Mint Collection
Ron Giannone was a longtime
customer & friend of PhillyMint. He was a meticulous collector and we are
proud to present his diecast collection to you.
The models in this collection
are in "mint" condition. The majority were purchased directly from The
Franklin Mint Museum Store in Aston, PA or from The PhillyMint Retail Store
in Glendora, NJ when we were an authorized Franklin Mint Gallery Store.
They were placed in air tight enclosed display cases which allowed the paint
to " breath".
Adult owned from a pet-free &
Since the models were
properly displayed or stored, the paint finish is rash free as delivered by
Franklin Mint in the 1990s-2000s.
All models include original
papers and hang tags. These are the "Heavyweights" when FM produced diecast
chassis. I can't imagine what they would cost to be produced in 2021.
The overall condition of the
boxes are excellent - near mint with only a few with postage, most were
purchased over the counter, not through shipping.
Satisfaction Guaranteed, each
model has been inspected by Vinny.
THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL,
ORIGINAL OWNER, EARLY FM PRECISION DIECAST AND NOT YOUR AVERAGE , HIGH
MILEAGE CAR THAT HAS PASSED THROUGH MULTIPLE HANDS BEFORE YOU RECEIVED IT!
