Dinky Toys 283 BOAC Coach
B.O.A.C. Coach by Dinky Toys, No. 283. Near mint plus/boxed. From The Off-shore Collection.
First issued during 1956, this coach has a deepest blue paint finish with a crisp white roof. ‘BRITISH OVERSEAS AIRWAYS CORPORATION’ lettering is very nearly perfect – virtually perfect on both sides. The BOAC lettering in yellow as well as the distinctive gold Speedbird emblem is complete and intact. Minor base tarnishing and the smooth original tyres are well-shaped.
A few minor marks to the paint finish at the sides.
The picture box is very bright, fresh and complete. Crisp feel. Tiny wear only.
