Dinky Price lists

Hello 

We find many models issued post war but with the same type smooth wheels or chassis from the prewar period.

Many in fact I think most seem not to suffer from the fatigue, is this because the models were produced using an improved casting material but using the moulds from the prewar period?

I recognise that some stock may well have been left over, but the presence of fatigue in that stock may well have been the reason for upgrading the casting material.

Wondered a little here, the point I was getting at is the price list for the models available Christmas 1945, will be the models found with smooth wheels and pre war type chassiss.

As I do not have copies of the 1946, 47 or 48 price lists, cannot complete my summary sheet.

Brilliant can now complete my spread sheet, I hope it will tell me and others when items were deleted or introduced. I am sure some experts will know of some of the inaccuracies of my assumption that these price lists represent what I think they do.

I also now know what I am looking for to complete my collection of price lists.

Thank you

Have completed my spread sheet of the price lists from leading up to Christmas 1945 - 1954. The information that presents itself is to me very interesting,  it does teach me much about the prices. We all assume that prices are on an upward tredectry, but no, prices fell considerably from the introductary prices post war as did the numbers of models being produced, which is also interesting.

Hence my determination to contine with the next 10 period, up until the sale of the company.

I did previously mention that the list also identifies the likey candidates for the use of prewar parts on post war models, ie smooth wheels, prewar casting, type 2, of the 25 series trucks and sometimes laqured chassis. We know that all thicker axels are post war but did some of the post was issues have the thin prewar axels, again this list limits the candidates for this possibility.

I have enjoyed checking my trade boxes that do have the scriblings of the original individual retail prices on the boxes and comparing them with my spreadsheet, it does enable you to reasonably date your box. This date can be also checked by the stamp within some of the later yellow trade boxes and usually the corrolation is seen, hence continuing.
