I have for some years been collecting model Die Cast vehicles. I only buy them when the price is right but can be quite profitable. I recently bought three " Exclusive first editions" for a total of £14 from Brum market. I have seen the same models for £12 each. Thats not a bad rate of interest.
Sheldonboy, Went over to Overwhitacre this afternoon where they hold an antigues and other stuff in a barn, picked up a Dinky 2T dumper truck, unfortunately no box and no number, It is not an old one, can you identify it for me please? Brookieboy

You can't really afford to keep dump trucks unless you specialise in earth moving like motorway work or similar. So what you do is buy trucks that can do site work and road work you know the best of both worlds. We had several dumpers though some of them were quite big, bigger than a Dinky anyway.

Bearing in mind the age of this model, the colour variation may be down to another production run, maybe by another shift or worker. Even today colours can vary. They may even have run out of the correct colour.
