French Dinky Toys 561 Citroen H Van 'CIBIE'
Citroen H Van 'CIBIE' by French Dinky Toys, No. 561. CONVEX wheels issue. Scarce. Very near mint/boxed. Early version with Dinky 'CIBIE' over-stuck label at an end flap. A delightful French Dinky Van from The Heart of England Collection.
An exquisite French Dinky Citroen model which makes a beautiful display piece, and in this fine condition, quite irresistible! Looking more like a period work of art than a Dinky Toy!
This Citroen H Van has a distinctive peacock blue paint finish and complete, vibrant transfers on both sides. Convex wheels (a more difficult find). Smooth original tyres run well.
Shiny baseplate. Occasional little mark to the paint finish.
The picture box is complete, bright and clean. Note this is the early version so one end flap has the Dinky over-stuck label ‘CIBIE’.
An eye-catching Dinky van made at the French factory between 1961-63.
