This collectible is the Veteran Car Gifts by Lesney ST 2S - Stainless Steel Desk Tray with Renault in Stainless Steel and chrome. The item features no moving parts.

The stainless steel base is in a kidney or recessed boomerang shape. To the rear right sits the Y2-2-A-6 (or 7) Renault in a chrome finish with dark red seats. The vehicle body casting has the Type B rear wing brace, Type 2 rear number plate, Type 2 radiator, and 3 prong spare tyre carrier. The underside of the base is modified with the addition of two holes into which the fixing screws go after passing through a short and long pillar (separate castings). It is marked "Models Of Yesteryear, 1911 Renault" at the centre top on two lines, "No. 2" in the middle centre, and "Made in England, By Lesney" at the centre bottom on two lines.

The tray came originally in the appropriate packaging of the time, a purple and brown (gold?) display window cardboard box, marked "Lesney, Stainless Steel Tray" on the front. The interior of the box is Purple cardboard. This item does not have its original packaging.

This item was issued between 1967 and 1968.
