French Dinky 551
French Dinky 551 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce. From The Nelson Colleciton.
The scarce version of the more familiar English Dinky 150. Actually, this French issue was made using the English casting, although assembled in France and of course what distinguishes it from its more common cousin is the baseplate stamp ‘Assemble en France’.
Gleaming two tone grey finish with bright chromed bumpers. Complete bonnet emblem too.
A few tiny marks to the paint finish.
The plain yellow card box is complete, bright and crisp. Very minor wear and the start of a small puncture on one side (not full thickness).
