Nicky (Dinky) 186 Mercedes 220 SE
Mercedes-Benz 220 SE by Nicky/Dinky Toys, No. 186. Scarce SILVER version. Very near mint/boxed. From A Phenomenal Collection.
Sought after models that are so difficult to find in good condition! Dinky dies were sold to the Indian Firm S. Kumar & Co. trading as Atamco. (1968-70). Often known as Indian-Dinky toys, the finish was poor in comparison.
A very close to mint example finished in silver with off-white interior, black steering wheel, and intact window glazing. Silver and black plastic one-piece tyres/wheels.
A difficult find:
Black base has tarnished speckling now.
Small light stain on one door.
The colourful correct box (ATAMCO P LTD. Calcutta) is a pretty impressive example ( by Nicky standards). Minor wear.
