unknown Britains Zoo - WWF card shop display stand. This stand has never been assembled and is in good condition for its age. I think it is from the mid 70's but have not found any thing to date it. There is minor crumpling to the top right corner and blue tack marks on the reverse. I will need to discuss post and packaging with the purchaser as it is an awkward size and shape.
