French Dinky Toys 823 GMC Tanker
Military G.M.C. Truck by French Dinky Toys, No. 823. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce. With card packing plinth, packing piece, sealed packet of accessories and promotional leaflet. From The Berlin Collection.
A sought-after item indeed from the French Dinky factory issued between 1969-70 only. This particular example is in close to mint condition. Hard to find a mark to the paint finish (save for the occasional light mottled mark) Delicate transfer is complete on one side, very small portion of the other transfer is missing. . Paper label “Liquides Inflammables”* is intact. The *filler caps on the top of the tank are always susceptible to damage – one has a very hard to notice little repair (we do not recommend opening the filler caps).
This example comes with the spare wheel behind the cab. Shiny axles and well-shaped original tyres.
Very fresh, clean and bright card plinth (couple of little tears). Transfers and road sign are still enclosed within the original sealed plastic packet. Promotional leaflet is included.
The outer box is complete and bright. Couple of the tiniest tears to the tuck-in part of both large end flaps. Very minor wear besides.
A scarce model which is becoming increasingly difficult to find.
