Dinky 512 Guy Flat Truck. First issue. Khaki and black. Very scarce! In Royal Blue card box. Near mint plus/boxed. From The Brighton Collection.
A fine, all original 1st issue example made between 1947-48 in this rare khaki and black finish with green wheels. No triangular lugs next to the number plate, early ridged wheels, and rear axle fixed by tin clips. Small unpainted hook.
Occasional minute mark to the paint finish. Painstaking inspection finds a few strokes of later paint. A little paint loss at the front ‘number plate’. Small dulled area on the baseplate.
Presented in a deep Royal Blue early box with a complete paper label (minor grubbiness, and light wear/fading). No splits or graffiti. Light scratch on one side of the lid.
Issued during 1947.
