Original Triumph Gift

Original Triumph complimentry match box. Made (we are told) to celebrate the 1959 launch of the Herald.

Later on these match boxes re-appeared with the picture of the red and white Herald covered by another Standard Triumph shield emblem. This has given rise to the theory that either there was a serious over production of the box in the first place, or that to few were given away at the original 1959 launch! Now much saught after by Triumph collectors, we have seen these change hands for over 5 each on e-Bay!
