On offer, at low start & no reserve, is a very rare empty box which once held 6 Dinky Toys 139B Hudson Commodore Sedan model cars & which would have been held by a Meccano / Dinky dealer.

This box is of light brown cardboard with a lift-off lid. The staples securing the base & the lid are a little rusty. The same label features at each end though on this box the end not seen has a small piece missing from between the R of Commodore & the S of Sedan & the TOYS of Dinky Toys on the top line. The box lid has a 1" vertical tear midway on each side above the thumb recess & was at one time taped but could easily be repaired with some invisibility. On the top of the lid it appears the dealer has inscribed, in ink, in a nice cursive script "Meccano washers. No.38. Reserve" so one assumes he kept this box which was often given to the purchaser of the last car in the box.

Listed separately is a Dinky Hudson Commodore Sedan car for restoration .
