Item Specifics
Franklin Mint 1948 Model 48 Tucker, 1:24, Waltz Blue, NO Box/CoA, w/Tag, 98% Mint. Condition is Used. 
This guy (girl?) lived in an acrylic display case, with original box & CoA immediately trashed. "He didn't collect boxes..." :-)
The Model 48 is fascinating read, filled with conspiracy, mis-management, hirings/firings/rehirings, lawsuits, a botched Preview, and on, and on.
According to Wiki, not one of the ONLY 50 cars produced was like the others, as each one was tweaked to work out previous "bugs" of all different sized reasons. Much engineering was ahead of its time, while much was a wing and a prayer. Previewed at $1000, prices typically grew to $4000. 
Once again, as you peruse eBay listings, 98% (wag) will simply say "look at the pictures". You can see mia mirrors and wipers, but absolutely no way you can see paint rash. You have to assume its there, then maybe be surprised. They are ALL "NO Returns", though. One guys says "Seems OK, I'm not an expert". CYA against scammer buyers, most likely, using "Not as Described" for a refund.
Painted in 1992, my guess is 100% will have some degree of rash, even if "New in Box". Its just the nature of early diecast.
This guy does have a very faint rash (but visible) on the rear 1/3 of the top, and miniscule dimples on the sides of front & back fenders. It's VERY difficult to show rash in closeups, as you need direct overhead light, which in turn, all you see is the light... Hood is perfection. 
But with a good wax, she'll still gleam in a display, as she really is a pretty car :-). ALL other chrome details are 100% intact. Priced very reasonable, especially as you know what you are getting.
Thanks VERY much for looking.
