Allmost.Moko was the putting together of the two names who started lesney,I believe.. and yes, i do believe they are earlier models..
I learned something today, thank you.Allmost.
My book says Leslie Smith and Rodney Smith (unrelated) were the founders.
Moko is from Moses Kohnstam who packaged and distributed MBs. Lesney later bought out Moko.
Another strange name you will find on old Lesney products like carrying cases, catalogs, and other packaging bound for the U.S. market is Fred Bonner.
Bonner was a salesman that imported the product and distributed it. Lesney bought him out as well, and then he became the first president of Lesney Products U.S.A.
