Dinky Toys 028r 'Swan' Delivery Van Type 3

Here is an original Type 3 'Swan'' van in black with black smooth wheels. Hard to find in any condition and where fatigue is the big enemy to this type 3 delivery van.  Completely original with original hardened black tyres. These have some element of flats but no severe. The black body has side transfers of a jar of 'Swan Pens' and their crest in gold lettering each side.

This is a superb example. Minor casting lines evident around the bonnet but a thin coating of varnish has been applied to the inner casting to strengthen against cracking. The paintwork is wonderful  with some noticeable chips to the rear  and right wheel arches other than this minimal. Very presentable and the best later type2-3 example I have owned.
The axles and wheels are very nice and the transfers superb with little loss at all.
Please read my summary comments.

A  rare piece in lovely condition. Perfect for the Pre-War enthusiast.


None. Sold from a trade box of six different advertising vans.

What an opportunity for the connoisseur Dinky collector. Great example of this harder issue to find.

Light tested for any obvious touch-ins. Difficult to tell but possible signs of touch-ins before lacquer applied.
