Hi I have a collection that was my dads , he passed away 20 years ago and we have only just found them all in the back of a cupboard , they have never been on display so have no fading or anything , my mum would like to sell them all either as a complete lot or individual, but we have no idea what they are worth , is there anyone that could help
This is what we have in the yesteryear I have others as well

without pictures its really hard to tell, you can use photobucket to upload them here.

based on the description though, these are straw & maroon boxed models so as a guide are worth no more than £1- £4 each if they are in perfect order and complete with boxes. If there is any scarce colour combinations you may realise a higher price but pictures will help there
