Nicky/Dinky Toys 194 Bentley S Coupe. Metallic deep green version, black tonneau, mid-brown dashboard. Mint/boxed, with packing ring. Purchased by the owner from a collector who had a contact in India. From The Rickman Collection.
Sought after models that are so difficult to find in good condition! Dinky dies were sold to the Indian Firm S. Kumar & Co. trading as Atamco. (1968-70). Often known as Indian-Dinky toys, the finish was poor in comparison.
A mint example finished in a distinctive intense metallic green shade with matching interior, original silver details, steering wheel, and intact screen. Silver and black plastic one-piece tyres/wheels with ’spoked details. Very dark brown dashboard.
The colourful correct box (ATAMCO P LTD. Calcutta) is complete and clean. Some of the usual rubbing at edges, couple of end flap tears and handling wear. Penned writing and price on one non-picture face.
