Should go on Amazon.com and search for any one of the great books that display the various versions and the manufacturers. That will give you a better idea of the value.

 

In my collection are are a variety of toy soldiers from different manufacturers to include tin ones made by Marx and a set of bisk American toy soldiers that came from Japan.

Dirk,

 

Apparently you're not a mod for nothing :D

 

That's exactly what they are.

 

I don't own them anymore but found them unceremoniously dumped in a box with a train set.

Thanks Dirk

 

dave did you ever buy soldiers from me?

 

I used to sell them at Silver Spring back in the 80s.

 

Do you remember when I was upstairs there was a guy next to me who sold post cards?

Love the Britains posted here.  That's what I primarily collected and still do off and on.  The Hugar display pieces are incredible!

 

Manayunkman- I see you have paired your collection with recognition model castings.  I have a couple Dale models and they pair perfectly with my wartime Britains.

 

I've started a topic on foreign toy soldiers on the other forum.  Please feel free to post and parts of your collections you care to share!

I only found Warrens one time, a box full at the flea market in 1982.

 

Several green sedans were with the officers.

 

The ID planes are actually period aluminum recasts and then period hand painted with house paint.

 

There is an unusual piece in there but it's hard to see.

 

If anyone knows Christian Keller he claims to have bought his first toy soldiers from me when he was a young boy.

There is a Britains set that looks exactly like it but is not as detailed.
