Corgi #252 Rover color question 6 years, 6 months ago #1

Hello, I am trying to figure out if the Corgi #252 Rover comes in more than one shade of blue, and how one tells the difference.  I have seen a color described as "light metallic blue" and "steel blue" and am wondering, are these the same color or two different colors?  Also, the Great Book of Corgi shows two tones of blue but doesn't identify the shades with specificity, and other toy guides refer to a "Kingfisher blue", supposedly similar to the rare Chrysler Imperial #246, but I have never seen this color.  If anyone has some examples of different shades of blue for #252 that show the differences, I would appreciate it!  Many thanks and happy motoring ...

I've been too busy looking for a plated Rover to notice that there were two shades of blue.

Yes haven't seen a gold plated version in quite some time. Good luck.
