New Auction of M&M Auctions on the 29th Septemeber
Machinery & Model Auctions is a brand new venture specialising in the resale and auction of Models and Machinery and runs its first auction this coming Friday, 29th September.
the past 15 years, M&M's background has been within the "Real Machinery"
sector, as well as being heavily involved in the "Collectable Model"
World. Indeed, they have attended many auctions and events relating
specifically to machinery or purely collectable toys and models. In
addition, they regularly attend vintage shows and toy collector's fairs.
Collecting real machinery and models are two hugely popular hobbies, to which there are certainly strong links between the two. From first hand experience, it is evident that many enthusiasts of real machinery will inadvertantly have a passion to collect the model replicas too, not forgetting other items of collectable machinery ephemera such as literature, badges and general bygones.
As a result, they bring Models and Machinery together into a set number of Auction sales each year, conveniently containing lots of interest relating to Models, Machines and any other ephemera that you could associate to these popular fields of collecting.
The first sale this coming Friday consists of lots predominantly farm and construction. The collection features many rare and sometimes unique items, of which many will have never been seen before:
NZG 1/35 scale JCB 3C MKII - Yellow with White Cab
A Unique 1/16 Scale (Approx) Preistman Model Cub V Excavator Loader and Low Loader Trailer - Used as a Demonstration Model by Preistman - Constructed from Wood and Metal by apprentices.
Magnificent Hand Built 1" (Nearly 1M Long) Live Steam Engine - Green and Black and Constructed from very sturdy materials
CAT 1/16 scale Plastic Crawler Tractor
Find more items on the sale on Friday, 29th September.
The auction will start at 5:30pm at Springfields Exhibition Centre, Spalding, Lincolnshire. For those not in attendance, it will be broadcast live on www.the-saleroom.com.
