The 40 items on offer include an early Dinky Toys Foden Lorry (£200-300), a rare Triang Minic Atco Mowers Van (£300-500), Matchbox Series Models (£150-200) and various other boxed and unboxed items from about £50 upwards.
Lawrences Auctioneer Simon Jones said, “Diecast toys and trains continue to be extremely popular in auction and it’s worth remembering that these were once sold for just pocket money prices of a shilling or two. Many collectors like to realise that `I had one of those` and so they buy items that remind them of their childhood. Our internet based sales have proved very popular with buyers, and go from strength to strength.”
These items will be included in Lawrences Collectors Sale on 23 and 24 May. For further enquiries about buying or selling, please contact Simon Jones on 01460 73041.
