Dupont No. 7 Leather Collection YY

Postby mgman1980b » Tue Apr 05, 2016 2:28 am

I have a Dupont NO. 7 Red Leatherette Case containing 7 Yesteryear Models and trying to find if anyone has an idea of the value of this collection. It is a red leatherette box with Classic 7 Cars on the top. Inside there is signage that says "An Exclusive Promotion" Dupont No 7 Products. The cars inside are 1926 Blue Bugatti #6,1928 White Mercedes Benz #10, 1913 Lavender Mercer Raceabout #7, 1929 Green Bentley with Red interior #5,1907 Light Green Rolls Royce #15, 1904 Yellow #16 and a 1912 Red Packard Landaulet #11. All have the small silver wire wheels with the exception of the Bugatti has 8 spoke wheels. The cars are mint and never been played. Any ideas on value ? Thank you. Dan

Hello Dan,

A very very rare set indeed. I paid over 1.000 usd for mine and sets have been sold for more.
Proper Name: Dupont 7 Salesman Set.

Issued to support the Mail Order promotion of the Dupont 7 Products.

There are at least 4 known examples in collector hands. (all members of the MOYBOYZ forum)

If you are a member of the (free to join) Yesteryear MOYBOYZ forum you can read a lot about this set here:

Larry Smith posted these photos on MOYBOYZ.
First, here is the salesman/promotional set of "Dupont Classic 7" in maroon vinyl box with the 7 second series YY's

and here is a mailer box with the 7 models in their D3 type box. (any combination of D1 thru D3 boxes have been seen)

Dan, that price was paid well before the international crisis. Prices have probally dropted since then as with collectibles.
Also there are less MOY collectors now then 10 years ago.
