This is the pre war 150 b box with the A number A 2198.
This item is not listed and is to be added to Al Keeling's excellent list.
Wow!!! this is a rare find Jacques, is box this yours or has someone sent you the photo?
No this is not mine, it's just one of the several thousand pictures on the DVD. I probably got it from eBay.
The other box I have for this reference is a post war export box (above). Note that the private is called Trooper, there are only six in a box and the font for "DINKY TOYS" is not the usual one.
I am looking for a picture of the non export post war box. Can anybody help ?
Jacques. There would never have been a post-war export box as these figures post-war were only sold to export markets- primarily USA
Here are two types of post war boxes for the Trooper (sitting)
The earliest one is marked 150b with a reference number 50179. The later one is dual numbered 150b and 604, there is no reference number on this box.
Has anyone ever seen a post war green box with only the 604 catalogue number?
Peter I had a message saying "Failed to move file"
Can you please put the missing pic in here
Done, we had exceeded our disk quota considerably due to some backups I generated the other day. I have now removed c 5 gigabyte of data from the site.
