Dinky toys are one of the most famous and well loved collected brands of diecast models in the world now part of the matchbox brand ,
Dinky toys hold several world records for highest prices raised at auction at vectis.co.uk for diecast models the old pre war models especially still in there trade boxes fetch thousands of pounds each,
I myself do not deal much in dinky or corgi to be honest as most of it is pretty common and seen on eBay often, yes dinky is worth a lot of money but it also costs a lot to buy so i find as a dealer profit margins are poor, as everyone knows its valuable,
So i tend to buy non British vintage diecast as it tends to be rarer as less available as when it comes to reselling its all about supply and demand.
I also worry with Dinky with collectors as most are pensioners and when collectors pass away who will buy them as the current diecast collectors market is favouring highly detailed models such as Minichamps recently.
such is my theory i have been selling since i was 12 years old and i see patterns such as things become collectible and rise in price greatly in the20-30 year period after they were originally sold,
the reason for this is adults in there 30's to 40's now with good jobs buy there childhood memory's back and share there interests with there kids ,
I am not advertising my sale page of dinky well here am i ?
I am a honest truthful toy dealer i say things as they are, i predicted and told collectors to buy Minichamps like mad when they used to cost 5 pounds at auction,
My advice to collectors wanting to make money in the future is buy up Cararama models and put them away and Also 80's polistil and burago models if you see them cheap and also another tip buy models of standard road cars not super cars,
as road car models are rarer in general and in the future people will relate with the car your dad had or you owned over maybe a Ferrari,
If money is no object then dinky is for you, but i do not see a great investment in them, but do look nice on display and make a good taking or Bragg about item on your shelf when visitors come around the house,
