Fantastic vintage toy collection with tin lithographed, battery operated and mechanical plus nice die cast. The auction will consist of many vintage tin and die cast toys, some with original boxes, many military related pieces dating back to the early 1920’s and some a little older. Manufacturers to include Tippco, Marx, Technofix, Bandai, Masudaya, Dinky, Corgi, Schuco and many more. Lots of extremely nice pieces that were well cared for. There are also at least two ITO wooden model ships and one is mint with the original wooden box. I have some photos of the pieces in their display cases but we still have to pick them and the hundreds of pieces of die cast up. We could only hold enough in our trailer for the January auction but this will all be picked up before the years end for advertising purposes. If you like military related toys, you will be impressed, for sure. The collector was very discerning and chose to keep only the best condition and harder to find items for his collection. Many are loose but some have original boxes. Keep checking back for updates all the way up until we have the catalog online 2 weeks before the sale date.
