Nicky Toys 295 Mini Bus
Standard 20 Mini Bus by Nicky (Dinky) Toys, No. 295. Scarce early issue and another First for QDT. Very near mint/boxed (plain white early box). From The Berlin Collection. Starting bid £200. 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.
A close to mint example Mini Bus model in light blue, and an early issue so separate wheels and tyres. Original silver details, off-white interior, black steering wheel, and intact glazing.
Little roof rub (to the raised detail).
Harder to find early issue plain white card box – this plain, end flap box has the correct ‘ATAMCO PRIVATE LTD. CALCUTTA’ and hand-written product details. A little age wear/grubbiness and two little tears..
