Dinky Toys 418 Comet Wagon with Hinged Tailboard
Comet Wagon with Hinged Tailboard (bolt fixing) by Dinky Toys, No. 418. Near mint plus/boxed. Orange & green issue with green Supertoy wheels. From The Reference Collection.
This Comet Wagon has a vivid deep green cab and chassis, deep orange back, and lighter green grooved wheels. Bright base. Working, intact hinged tailboard. Original grey, radial tyres (two have a light flat spot, little discolouration in places). Spare stowed. Bolt fixing. ‘418’ cast.
Correct for this box, this model has ‘Dinky Toys’ and not ‘Supertoys’ cast into the chassis.
Close to mint finish. Barely a mark to be seen although closest inspection finds a few tiny retouches (need a magnifying glass).
The Dinky Toys box is bright and complete. Light age/handling wear. Rusty staples. Dated 1957 (Dinky stamp inside the box lid).
