This item is the Corgi GS04-B-1 Country Farm Set in red. This is the trailer only (without haystack and figures) and is approximately 140mm long, 54mm wide, and 21mm high. It is intended to attach to the #50 Massey Ferguson Tractor from the set. The trailer is cast metal and may be missing the rear trailer gate. The first photograph shows the trailer with hay load and figures (Item 4160 in my collection, not yet photographed).
The wheels are hollow plastic units with an 8 dot chrome centre. They are mounted on a steel axle that fits into three areas on the underside of the trailer. The axle is pinch clamped to the body casting at each point.
The base is actually the underside of the casting and it is marked "Corgi Toys, Made in Gt. Britain", on two lines, forward of the axle and "Pat. App. 3396/69" and "MAZAC die-cast" at opposing ends of a single line to the rear of the axle.
The set was issued between 1974 and 1975 and featured a #50 Massey Ferguson tractor, red trailer with hay load, figures, and fences.
