Lehmann “Royal Mail” English mail truck w/driver

Believed to be made from 1907-1935 for the British market, Lehmann EPL 585 depicts a mail truck with “Royal Mail” lithoed in English on the side.  Virtually all Lehmann toys were labeled in German, so that may explain the rough “brushed-on” look of the “Royal Mail” designations.  We have seen the same look on others and it passes the black light test, so be assured it is correct with working steering wheel, spoke wheels and locking rear doors.
