Nicky/Dinky Toys 054 Standard Herald MKII. Metallic red , early issue with separate wheels & tyres. Mint/boxed. Scarce in METALLIC RED. From The Cumbrian 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 rich metallic ed, with original silver details, white interior, steering wheel, and intact window glazing. Early issue with tyres and wheels with shiny silver wheel detail.
In mint condition:
The colourful correct box (ATAMCO P LTD. Calcutta) is complete and clean. A very good example of this type of box. Happily free of the usual ‘white edges’ or heavy tears that plague these comparatively flimsy boxes. Little price label at an end flap.
