Dinky Gift Set 16 Silver Jubilee Train Set
"Silver Jubilee" Train Set by Dinky Toys, No. 16. Red & silver version. Near mint plus/boxed. Rare pre-war set from The Bickley Collection.
A very scarce and early Gift set from Dinky (1936-37). This pre-war Silver Jubilee Train set comprises a locomotive and two interlocking coaches in silver with red trim. Black wheels and white tyres are all in excellent clean and bright condition. Notably, this three part set comes with all pieces intact; so often the delicate couplings break off in a set of this age.
Finish is generally bright although there is some pitting/tarnishing where the models have picked up moisture from the box over the passage of time.
The box is bright and complete, showing a little light age/handling wear. Surface loss/wear to one short lid end.
The inner is crisp and bright with a colourful pictorial scene in which all three components sit. A beautiful display backdrop!
Couple of tears to the inner.
A historic Dinky set to add to your collection.
