Dinky Toys 917 Mercedes Truck & Trailer
Mercedes-Benz Truck & Trailer by Dinky Toys, No. 917. Near mint plus - very near mint (with both wing mirrors)/boxed.
A Dinky heavyweight two-piece set made between 1968-74. A shining mid-blue and yellow finish on both items, complete with white detachable tilts. Truck has a white roof and red interior. Jewelled headlights, front and rear number plates. Nice to see that both wing mirrors are present and intact.
A few minor marks to the paint finish and a little blistering to the paint finish in a couple of places due to prolonged contact with the card.
The detailed card sleeve is clean, crisp, complete and bright, although there is some ruffling/minor tearing at some wheel slots (this is a heavy item!).
The large all card outer box is complete and bright. Promotional label ‘FIRST WITH OPENING DOORS’. One end flap has been re-attached and there is a little tape repair to another end flap. Minor wear besides.
