Dinky Toys  028D OXO Delivery Van 1st Issue

£3,950.00 (Sold out)

Available for sale from my own long standing personal Dinky collection.

Issued 1933-34

A 'Diecast Gem'
Description

Here is an original and very hard issue to find in any condition, a 28 series 1st issue delivery van, in the blue body with blue washed metal wheels in 'OXO BEEF IN BRIEF' advertising in gold. On the opposite side is 'OXO Best AT ITS BEST' in gold. Any 28 series van is a difficult find but this variation is not often found.

Condition

This beautiful model , totally original with no touch ups is in excellent plus-near mint condition. The radiator surround remains gleaming with no rust or corrosion. The body work is amazing. Some small nicks if you study carefully. One or two little darker stain's  which may be touch-ins on the bonnet and roof but maybe surface stain's. They do not show up with a detective lamp. The wheels are very nice and from below like new. Outstanding piece. No evidence of corrosion or damage.

Box

None. Sold from a trade box of six different advertising vans. I believe the current world record sale for Dinky is a trade box of these 1st series delivery vans.

Summary

What an opportunity for the connoisseur Dinky collector. The best I have seen in 40 years of collecting.
