--27 Series boxes

Series 27 in the transition period of the renumbering:

Dinky Toys catalogue UK 1954 with renumbering Series 27.

In the transition period of the renumbering around 1954 almost all existing models from that time got a new sales number and an individual (dual numbered) box. It is also the closure of the old system of trade boxes containing multiple loose models. From now on, the models get their own individual box with their own sales number. A new system of trade boxes was introduced, whereby a certain number of boxed models now were packed in a different kind of trade box.

I collected all existing individual dual numbered boxes of the Farm Equipment in the 27 series and I like to show this. Only my 27g and 323 are reproduction boxes.

Dinky Toys series 27 dual numbered boxes with the exception of 322 and 323 who did not receive an individual dual numbered box.

Dinky Toys series 27 dual numbered boxes with corresponding model.

Only the 27h Disc Harrow and the 27j Triple Gang Mower did not got an individual dual numbered box. The Disc Harrow did receive a dual numbered trade box 322 27h with four discs and 27j got a box with the new sales number 323.

Strange that the 30n Farm Produce Wagon has not been given a 27 serial number while it is counted as part of the Farm Equipment. In the renumbering this was corrected and the 30N Farm Produce Wagon was included in the 340 numbers Farm Vehicles and was given the successive number 343.

The 27AK Farm Tractor & Hay Rake also received a dual numbered box 310 27AK. This is actually a Gift Set with 2 models.

Finally, the complete Farm Equipment pictured in Dinky Toys catalogue UK 1957.

The Farm Equipment models were very popular and many models were produced and sold until the 1970s. Comments or additions are very welcome.
