It was an incredible sale Saturday last on day two of our August Specialist Toy & Model auction. Aside from a hugely successful sale across both days with prices buoyant throughout the catalogue, attention was particularly focused on lots 1296 and 1297, the pair of Dinky 28/1 and 28/2 Trade Boxes, complete with 6 type two delivery vans in each. With one family owner since new, the sets had hardly seen the light of day albeit for a change in loft spaces occasionally. These exceptional examples realised £25,000 between them once bidding fee’s were accounted for. A truly amazing result for two significant items of dinky pre-war history.
