Why Buy from Diecast Gems?

Hi, I am Phil Silvester – husband, father, grandfather and avid Dinky collector.

I have been collecting Diecast toys for over 40 years, specialising in high quality models and how to differentiate quality stock from cheap mock ups or touch ups.

My clients have returned to me again and again, knowing they can rely on me to source them true quality to add to their portfolios – which is why I launched Diecast Gems in 2013 to provide a new source of quality Diecast models for sale to the discerning collector
