Notes

Shown on page 230 of ‘The Great Book of Dinky’ in an original photograph of a Dinky display from 1960. This very unusual item measures approx. 33cms x 18cms. It is made from sturdy card finished in blue with pale yellow writing below the cut-out letters of ‘DINKY TOYS’.

The card behind is red and due to the construction, light enters from the top of the sign
and so gives the illusion of illuminating the ‘DINKY TOYS lettering in red. Quite ingenious – and ’Light Thief’ Patented is printed in the bottom left corner.
A little wear particularly on the reverse.
