Dinky 753 Police Controlled Crossing
Police Controlled Crossing by Dinky Toys, No. 753. Very, very near mint/boxed. From The Kingshill Collection.
An interesting accessory item from Dinky made between 1962-67. It consists of a black and white striped box in the centre of a traffic island with a policeman directing the traffic. All complete with the removable lamp standard, and traffic bollards with paper labels in place. The policeman can be moved around on his base to control the traffic from different directions (operated by means of a wheel at the side of the police box).
In unused condition with light age grubbiness to the complete paper label.
The long, slim red and yellow card box is complete and tear-free, with a crisp feel. Minor wear and light surface rubs. Minor grubbiness. Operating and assembly instructions printed on the reverse of the box.
