Nicky 120 Jaguar 'E' Type. Metallic green. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce! From The PBW 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.
This ‘E’ Type Jaguar model is finished in metallic green with an intact detachable black hood, and detachable cream folded hood. Original windscreen is complete too.
Couple of small chips.
An early issue since the Dinky lettering on the baseplate is still partially visible with just the letters ‘DIN’ blanked out (so ‘KY’ and ‘TOYS’ still visible), as well as the original lettering ‘Jaguar ’E’ Type from Dinky. No reference to the Indian manufacturer made on the base of this early Nicky Toys model.
The box (to Nicky toys standard) is very nice indeed – complete, clean and with a crisp feel to the card. Small tear and very light wear.
