Dinky Toys 905 Chain Foden
Foden Flat Truck with Chains by Dinky Toys, No. 905. Red & Grey. Rivetted issue. Very near mint/boxed. Dated September 1959. From The Hastings Collection.
Made between 1957-64, with date of issue October 1958 stamped on the inside of the box lid.
A most attractive truck which presents nicely, with glossy red and grey finish, straight posts with original chain, rounded chain post bosses and grooved metal ‘Supertoy’ wheels. Well-shaped radial tyres.
Bright unfaded colours. Rivetted back.
A few minor marks and closest scrutiny reveals a couple of little retouches. Very small rough casting mark on the roof has a little extra dab of factory paint.
The Dinky Supertoys striped box with sloping (italicised) Supertoys print is clean and strongly-coloured. Untarnished staples. Light wear.
