This item is special in a way that this company "Van Gend & Loos" does not exist anymore (now DHL). It has been an icon in Dutch freight movement.

The Allied Van Lines, as far as I know, has not been issued in the Netherlands. I believe that this one has been produced in Canada. If any one knows more details or knows more about it. Please let me know.

"I purchased it at auction and as you can see I take care to not scratch it. Its a Tonka B-202 Stock Farm Set made in 1957. When I first read the auction listing it had this toy listed with its origional box. Nothing about condition. When I got there I couldn't believe it. They don't come any better then this. I thought someone must have restored it and put the parts to the corral in a bag and shrink wrapped them. Since then I have come to realize that its all origional and the pride of my collection."

goes."

A very nice collection from Edward. This was the mail he send me:

" ... 

I've been collecting tonka toys seriously for around 5 years, but I've always had tonkas.
 
My collection ranges from a 1955 red pickup, right up to brand new tonka toys. I mainly focus on tonkas from the 1960's and 70's. most of my collection is made up of tonka Canada toys, as these were imported to the UK I believe.
 
Heres a few pics, many more can be found on the Ebay tonka groups.
