Dinky Toys 417 Leyland Comet Wagon


Here is a rare opportunity to purchase an almost mint example (shop fresh) of this sought after and popular Dinky toy.

A scarce colour variation and last issue, with flat top riveted back rather than the screw fitting, is with a yellow cab and chassis with a peppermint stake back and green ST wheels.

417 is inscribed on the base of the stake back. It has grey ST tyres and a spare below.

Four new tyres would upgrade this model mint. It would be hard to find much better and totally original paint. A real show stopper.

Appears as new with wonderful bright paint work this has to be one of the most attractive Dinky commercials. So often these models, due to their high value, are found with repainted areas and touch-ins. This is a beautiful example and the best I have ever had. The only reason for not mint are the tyres. They may benefit from a soapy wash and each have a minor flat (all very even). The tyres have hardened. They do not need to be changed for showing but if they did, you have an impeccable model. Lovely shiny top rivet, bright axles and a totally clean base plate. There is not even a resting plate break in the paintwork below.

Box Condition

This is the correct later yellow picture lift off box and has a factory applied green spot to one end. I have not often encountered a green spot but this was a very early box and printed on the inside of the box top ‘1 57’ suggests January 1957. This is an early release. There is little wear as far as edge loss to top or bottom. Minor ripples to the top box as paper cover separates from the backing card.
