Baseplates

Here is the base of the 363 Zygon Patroller which interstingly only states "Made In England" there is no reference to either Dinky Toys or Meccano Ltd.

Is this unique in not having any name or were there any other Dinky Toys like this?

It seems that according to the Dinky Toy Compendium this model and the 368 Zygon Marauder were initially issued as the Cosmic Interceptor and Cosmic Cruiser for Marks and Spencer. Both initially marked just made in England. When reissued as Dinky Toys the 368 Zygon Marauder was marked Dinky Toys etc. but the 363 did not have Dinky Toys Marking applied.

It also seems that late versions of the 354 Pink panther were also not marked either.

Somebody with a collection of these late Dinky Toys may be able to give more information.

The Pink panthers without fly wheel were marked : PINK PANTHER - MECCANO LTD - MADE IN ENGLAND. The words MADE IN ENGLAND are at the place where DINKY TOYS was on the flywheel version.

If somebody wants to start collecting these funnies, this one is for sale.

The picture is very poor, this is because the blister can not be opened. A better picture will be welcomed.
