Does any know of any good books or websites on identifying and dating lead toy soldiers. Im sure some are Britain, but some are also Barclays. Most look to be WWI soldiers and some old west. Big box of toys!!! Any help would be appreciated as I have no knowledge of the old stuff.

I can help....PM me with photos and I will I'd them for you. The Britain's should be stamped on the underside of the base or if mounted on the underside of the horse. Joe Wallis has some great books out there on Britain's as well as a James Opie.

Happy to help as well.  The older Richard O'Brien volumes on US and foreign toy soldiers are great primers!

Agree the above books are all you should need. Any serious collectors of AQM Toy Soldiers out there?

Maybe you can post them here so we can all learn?  I've been passing by toy lead soldiers for 50 years as I don't know anything about them.  Just a thought.  

 

Thanks!
