Re : New arrivals

One can never have too many of the wonderful Taxi with Driver, Jonathan! Continuously upgrading them I sold the still very nice one below at Houten last week.

Talking horse boxes, the other day I found a lovely replacement at last for a Dinky Horse Box which I sold three years ago already. This one is really nice, bright and almost without chipping: as new.

By the way, attending today a horse event in which my daughter and her daughters take part. They all have been horse-mad ever since they were born! Kind regards, Jan

Re : New arrivals

Lasrt week I got my first Range Rover ambulance.

Note that the stickers on the doors are black (usually they are red) as the one on the roof.

The  steering-wheel is metallic grey.

Kind regards

Richard

Congraulations for discovering the pack of six french crates. I have now recorded it in the Dinky Toys Encyclopaedia but could you please be kind enough to provide a good picture of this rare pack.

Re : New arrivals

Jacques -- it is sweet that we keep discovering things about Dinky Toys. I noticed that the pack of six crates was not recorded in the Encyclopaedia, only the pack of ten. That surprised me because as far as I knew, the pack of six is the common version and the pack of ten is the rare one!

I wonder when they changed the number of crates. Or is it possible that the pack of six was for export, and the pack of ten for France?

Here are some more pictures of my packs of six.

Re : New arrivals

When these accessories were sold in Britain, they were in packets of six, except for number 851 which had eight items - two each of 846 oil drums, 847 barrels, 849 packing cases and 850 bottle crates. Note that 848 luggage trunks wwere not sold in Britain, neither were 844 and 845, barriers and oil pipes (for the Unic Saharien).

Re : New arrivals

Johnny and Kevin,

 

Thank you for your pictures and informations. The pack of six is now listed in the encyclopaedia. I have no idea about why or when there were two different packaging. All I know about these accessories is that they were made at the Calais factory. Bobigny never made any plastic parts.

Re : New arrivals

These plastic accessories were hard to find in the U.S., and I have wanted the 844 barriers (the rarest set, in my opinion) ever since I saw them in a catalogue as a child. They would have had lots of "play value." Sadly if I ever do get any they will stay sealed in their plastic bag these days -- ah, for the innocent days when one could actually play with Dinky Toys.

Re : New arrivals

A couple of nice recent finds:

French no. 24h Mercédès 190 S.L., the early version with old reference number and without plastic windows, the last no. 24 introduction, I presume, of June 1958. Some more details later on.

And a fair no. 23a (Small Open) Racing Car, in silver with silver wheels and continuous red stripe on top, crimped axle ends and central cross strengthening bar inside. This one making the sixth postwar variation. Kind regards, Jan

Re : New arrivals

This morning came this Holden special sedan.

Note the red seats which are very uncommon. Never seen before.

Kind regards

Richard

Re : New arrivals

Seeing your red seat version of the bronze car made me check my examples - my bronze one has the normal very pale bluish-green seats, but my turquiose car has red seats. It also has bronze paint under the bonnet and boot lids, all original.

A few new deliveries this month. Unfortunately the Terex was not 79p any more ...

Re : New arrivals

Hi Jonathan, that's quite an interesting bunch of nice additions. The bright red immediately post-war British Salmson Two-Seater is lovely, with its original white-greyish medium size tyres! It must be a dilemma wether to leave the wind screen bent down as it is, or lift it up into its correct upright position, with some risk of breaking it. The tyres of your models are remarkable anyway. The correct medium white tyres on the Autocar Chausson are my favourites, even though they are hardly realistical. The fine tread tyres on the yellow Sunbeam Talbot are not very common and the lonely odd left front tyre for the grey Salmson begs for replacement. The British fine tread white tyres on the French Traction Avant look special indeed. They are almost a decade older than the model itself. If only one knew the history of such a model ...

The Terex must be a milestone for you indeed, as it was for me. Yes, three times at least the value of a regular Euclid. But, one can have some collector's luck, sometimes. Kind regards, Jan

Re : New arrivals

Jonathan——What a nice, mixed batch of new acquisitions! You have been heard at work.....not easy to find a Terex like that....and yours appears to be very nice condition. I really like the red Salmson, especially an early postwar with the smooth wheels and white tires....very sporty!
Best regards, Terry
