Dinky toys 971 coles mobile crane cc597

Price: £150.00



An original example of this classic Dinky Supertoy which was renumbered 971 in 1954. The earlier and later numbering on lid ends so marking the transition form the older numbering to the new. Dated 1954 therefore.
Early version – so note that this example does not have ’COLES lettering or indeed the chevron markings at the rear. Deep yellow and matt black, with yellow grooved Supertoy wheels. With tan driver. Brass winding handle cuffs.



The model is in very close to mint condition with barely a mark. Original grey radial tyres (two light tyre flat spots).

The striped Dinky Toys box (straight not italic print) presents well, showing minimal handling and careful storage. Tarnishing to staples. Packing pieces are still present.
