Dinky Toys 260 Royal Mail Delivery Van


 

Here we have an example of the 260 Royal Mail Delivery Van in its original box. The model uses the frame of a J Morris van, which was notably also used for the 465 blue Capstan vans.

In the example above, the box boasts a dealer label from a Belgian toy shop, named "Au Cadeau Reve" or "Dream Gifts".

The model was originally advertised in the May 1955 Meccano Magazine and was released at a price of 3/-. It was produced for a number of years, until it was withdrawn in 1961, and was also included in the 299 Post Office Services Gift Set.

In perfect condition this item can, at a push, fetch up to £250.
