A scarce and early Gift Set from Dinky with great nostalgic British appeal! A rare find.
1) Dinky 42A Police Box has a wonderfully glossy deep blue finish with silver details. A delight- in close to mint condition with no fatigue or crazing.
2) Dinky 42B Motorcycle Patrol in honest, original condition with some chipping to the paint finish. Clean, undamaged, original, white, solid rubber wheels. Nearly always split, or at best very grubby, these are a welcome sight! Notably no fatigue to the model.
3) Dinky 42C Point Duty Policeman in a white coat. Very light marking and a couple of extra strokes of paint (either factory or at least a long time ago).
4) Dinky 42D Point Duty Policeman in a blue uniform. Glossy, original finish chip to one arm and a couple of tiny marks besides.
*Inner carded tray is fresh, bright and clean with no loss of colour vibrancy. A wonderful London scene backdrop for these items.
Small part-tear to one lower edge and a smaller tear near the top of the cut-out for the Police Hut but otherwise minimal wear. Attractive mid-blue lift-off lid box is well-preserved card with no tears, splits or repairs. A little light mottling in places.
