Dinky 10 Ton Army Truck, ‘British’ Model

Dinky_TenTonTruck

 

The early military Dinky toys were sold in yellow boxes that had black lettering with six or twelve pieces to the box. This practice eliminates having ‘Mint-Boxed’ as a condition of the individual toy. Also, it should be noted that these pre-war Dinky toys differ from their post-war re-issues as follows:

Pre-war: Smooth hubcaps

Post-war: rimmed hubcaps 

Dinky post-war British vehicles are dated as being between 1954 – 1977. 

The Dinky 10 Ton Army Truck, ‘British’ Model #622 is die cast with rubber wheels. This particular truck was made to have a canopy cover over the rear bed. The truck in the picture above, has the following features:

Driver on right side

Six (6) rubber wheels (black)

Painted ‘Army’ green

Head lights with silver paint

Decals on front and rear

Open windshield and side windows

Length: 5-1/4″

Trailer hitch on rear

Rimmed hubcaps

Embossed on the bottom: 

Dinky Supertoys

#622

Made in England, MECANO Ltd.

10 Ton Army Truck 

Dinky made many fine, detailed cars and trucks – and my favorite reference book for pricing and identifying is  Collecting Toy Cars & Trucks !   I might add that this book is not just for Dinky, but is a compreshesive reference for just about any toy car or truck where you might be looking for information.  Thanks for looking.
