The latest Atlas Dinky collection model shipped is a Citroen 2CV that has been seen on MARs pages before. Again this is a French Dinky model already seen in the continental collection and many collectors will like me have already bought one cheaply on eBay in the past. I wonder how many collectors are cancelling their subscription to this collection? It was originally advertised as including the Dinky toys from the UK but that is seldom the case now.
The box is marked 535 and 24T but the model is blue and fitted with the later wheels so is a later model. The model was in production from 1959 to 1963 and the body shape was already out of production a year after the model was launched.
A good replica but not perhaps what collectors want from this series.
