General Information: One of the rare Daum cars,
the Aston Martin DB5 was designed in the larger 1:12 scale, and
produced only in a limited edition of 250 pieces. As one of the later
produced, the DB5 was shipped in Daum's shoebox style box. It came
with a certificate of Authenticity that was also numbered to match
the car. This car was also designed by Xavier Froissart. I have
now verified the actual edition size of the Aston Martin DB5, with
help from people in high places! Only 84 Aston Martin DB5's were
actually produced and sold by Daum.
I am very pleased to have S/N 1/250 in my collection. This car is
not only signed "Daum France", but also signed by the designer as "X.
Froissart", and is further annotated as the first Artist's Example
by the designation "1 EA". I have added additional pictures below
showing Xavier Froissart's signature and the EA designation. For further
information about EA cars, see my Daum
Automobiles page. I have also included the original invoice, and
Cert of Authenticity for S/N 11/250 that I owned previously.
