Dinky Toys 965 Euclid Rear Dump Truck
Euclid Rear Dump Truck by Dinky Toys, No. 965. Near mint plus/boxed. With window glazing version, red-backed logo at the sides. Dated 1960. From The Fenman Collection.
A familiar Dinky Supertoy from Dinky’s heyday; surely every child from the mid 50’s-60’s remembers it well! This version has the red-backed logo (earlier issues had a pale yellow backed logo), and has window glazing.
A creamy yellow paint finish, shiny metal winding handle including the cuff, and the all-important “Euclid” lettering, logo, and wording complete on both sides.
Usual contact marks only visible once the tipping back is elevated. A few little marks besides. Close scrutiny finds a couple of little touch-ins.
The striped Supertoy box is bright and clean. Looking fresh. However, there is a puncture
(which has pressed back into place) caused by the winding handle, as is so often the case!
Light wear besides. Dinky stamp inside the lid dates this particular example from 1960
