This question seems to come up often enought to warrent a standard response/informaton thread

This is still probably the best write up I have come across for any type of diecast errors....


  • It is very difficult to put a price to a piece of error car, it varies from one collector to another and it depends on how badly a collector wants to possess the piece or at what price the collector in possession of such piece would like to let go. However, some errors are definitely rarer than others and thus fetch a much better price.
  • Most error cars are not “one of a kind” but it is true to say that there is a small quantity of it distributed all over the place. Even though there are several hundreds or thousands of error cars out there but it is still rare when we consider there are a few million pieces of the same car without error, produced and distributed worldwide. There are indeed very few pieces of “one of a kind” error cars out there and it is extremely difficult to locate and identify and some may have been lost forever when children unknowingly picked up these pieces, removed it from the blister pack, plays with it and eventually ends up as thrash.

Rather than list all 400 or so threads on errors it will be easier for you to use the Search Community tool in the site menu bar at the top of the page. Select the Search "Error" in this forum option and it will show the most relevant threads about errors or change the filter setting to most recent threads first. Happy reading! 🤙

Most people want to know how much their error is worth. The first thing to do is determine how much the regular casting sells for. Then look at the same type of error in other castings. Or even the same casting. Most often recommend are the ebay sold listings to make that determination.
