TOPIC: Another batch of cars from a fellow collector

Another batch of cars from a fellow collector 10 months, 1 week ago #1

Moderator
<p>Yesterday I picked up a bunch of cars from a fellow collector who lives a few blocks away. He has to stop collection due to health issues. I already sold a batch of other cars for him, this time his collection of Corvettes and a small part of his military diecast are up. Most of the Corvettes are 1/18 Bburago ones. There is also a Joustra tinplate tower crane and some Atlas Military models, but these have to be photographed</p>

Are there any CorgToys included that you sell?

Yes Theo, quite the task for sure. Are you listing them all separately or are some going as lots?

Patrick, no there are no Corgis in this lot.

Jim, I shall sell most of them seperately. The smaller cars will go as 1 lot. There are also a few nice original inky Toys and a few Atlas Military model, which are not photographed yet

Shipping from you to me is what kills the deal unless it is a cheap car or truck. Sounds like you fellow collector has some nice items though so nothing cheap for me. LOL >

I had a short holiday, so now that I am back I can contribute again.
Yes Jim, shipping to Canada is not cheap, I agree.
Here are a few photos of the tinplate tower crane, made by Joustra France.
Any information is welcome, I can not find much about it.

There are a few on eBay but not cheap. IT would seem there is a clock work in this crane.

<p>There is no makers mark on the base, it is a flat base. Soon I shall be uploading a photo of it for you</p>
