Trade box of 6 x Dinky 25B Covered Wagons. Cream, black chassis, red tinplate canopy, red wheels, type 4. With card dividers. Excellent plus - near mint. A very scarce item from The Cumbrian Collection.
An eye-catching array of 6 x Covered Wagons (Vans) finished in cream and black, with red tinplate canopies, type 4 chassis. Intact radiator and headlight assembly. 20 mph hour label is still in place at the rear (small nick to one). Very attractive display item. These models were issued between 1947-50, so not individually boxed. All would have been sold from a shopkeeper’s trade box of 6.
Condition range: excellent plus – near mint. A little retouch to two of the Wagons.
Few minor marks mostly confined to the tinplate canopies. Occasional tyre flat spot. Intact tow hooks.
The buff lift-off lid card Trade box has tape residue and a couple of tape repairs. Complete and bright paper label at lid end. Penned ‘Wagon’ on the top surface. A little age wear and tear, commensurate with age.
Nice to see the original dividers still present. Couple of tape repairs.
