Leyland Comets

Dear all, for me it was a surprise to observe that the silver trim (that is, the spray mask used) of the front bumpers of the Leyland Comet with Hinged Tailboard can be different.

The no. 419 on the left has a wider strip of silver than the older no. 532 on the right.

Comparing this with two other Comets I see the same pattern: the (late) no. 418 Cement Wagon on the extreme left has the same difference with the (early) no. 531 Lorry on the extreme right. Could others confirm that this is a general pattern, a general difference for the 400 and 500 numbers? And, what do the rather short-lived intermediary 900s show?

Kind regards, Jan Werner

Re : Leyland Comets

I think you have your numbers mixed up Jan

418 is the Comet with the hinged tailboard and 419 is the Cement Lorry.

with regard to the paint mine conform to the same pattern as yours.

Re : Leyland Comets

You're quite right, Dave, stupid, that's quite a sin in terms of Dinky collecting ...
Thanks for the confirmation!

Kind regards, Jan Werner

Re : Leyland Comets

Here are mine ! The cement wagon has a very thin filament of silver paint. :)
