The Phillips Collection


We are fortunate that we receive emails at QDT from collectors when they are considering selling their collections. We were delighted to receive an email from a U.S. collector who had been good friends with Mike & Sue Richardson, authors of ‘The Great Book of Dinky Toys’. Back in the day, he gathered information about Dinky Toys U.S. issues and catalogues that assisted Mike & Sue Richardson with articles, particularly Sue’s comprehensive piece on the 39 Series in Model Collector magazine. He was acknowledged by them in ‘The Great Book of Dinky Toys’.

Coming soon to QDT.
