Packaging Error

Postby Katz » Fri Oct 10, 2014 7:32 pm

Hi. I am Katz and I am fairly new at this. I have a 97 First Edition Mercedes C-Class #516 Hot Wheels. The car has been mispackaged and the top of the car is against the card. What does this do to the value? Could someone have turned it on purpose? Like I said I am a newbee and need all the help I can get. Thanks

Depending on how tightly the car fits within the blister pack, it is sometimes possible for a car to be turned while in the package. However, most of the time, this happens while it is being packaged. This may not necessarily increase the value, but sometimes a collector of errors or someone who collects a particular casting may pay a premium for an error such as this.

The most I have ever spent on a VW error is $2.
