Dinky 252 Refuse Wagon

By diecastgems, Aug 27 2018 02:56PM

Two more rarites turn up.

What a sensational year for the 252 Refuse Wagon.

Here are not one but two more rarites to add to the unknown recorded list.

The first is an unboxed early tan with green but cream ridged wheels not the usual red, This early version has no windows and an early mottled base plate. In close to mint condition.

The second is the olive green and black version with no windows but instead of the usual cream wheels this has striking red ridged wheels with later bobbly tyres and and a later black gloss base plate. Also it has a red and yellow later non picture box..

You never know what is going to turn up next. This is what makes collecting and trading so much fun.

Happy collecting
