A ‘Diecast Gem’

Description

Here is an original early Pre-War 28series delivery van and hard to find in any condition.
Advertising ‘Pickford’s’ and finished in dark blue cab & chassis and gold lettering with cerise washed wheels.

This beautiful model, totally original and with no touch ups is in very presentable condition. There is some chipping particularly around the front wheel arches with some chipping to the roof. The transfers are really nice with little loss. The wheels retain some cerise wash over the metal casting. The radiator surround is great and the general casting also sound. The axles are clean though the front has a very slight bend. The model rolls well.
For a model that is 85 years old and made in the first year of Dinky Toys production it is still a very nice and rare piece. An important part of the Dinky history. No evidence of corrosion or damage.
A great opportunity for the Pre war Dinky collector.
Totally original, fully checked model and light tested with no known added touches.

Box.

None. Sold from a trade box of six different advertising vans.
I believe the current world record sale for Dinky is a trade box of these 1st series delivery vans.
