Nicky/Dinky Toys 054 Standard Herald MKII. Excellent/boxed. Scarce in SAFFRON YELLOW. From A Phenomenal Collection. Starting bid £300. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
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.
An excellent, all original example finished in deep yellow, with original silver details, white interior, black steering wheel, and intact window glazing. One-piece tyres and wheels with shiny silver wheel detail.
Shiny black base with ’DINKY TOYS", product name and Indian Licensee details visible.
A few medium-sized chips to the paint.
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 heavy tears that plague these comparatively flimsy boxes. Crisp feel. Small tear and very light wear only.
