Extraordinarily Excellent Dinky Trade Boxes

We continue our preview of two Extraordinarily Excellent and original Dinky Trade Boxes coming up for sale in our August auction. Issue 28/1 and 28/2 consisting of 12 type 2 vans from between 1935 and 1938. With the type 2 vans, Zinc rot also known as fatigue is almost an accepted state of condition with very few if any being free of such a common problem. The vans in this case vary from some notable crazing to extremely minor however it is the notion of almost no paint loss on nearly all examples that stands these sets so brightly amongst anything previously sold. Indeed, very few examples if any have been sold especially with these box variations. We’re intrigued as to how they do next week but for now, enjoy some further images of these historically significant type 2 delivery vans.
