The Saturday session will include brass HO, Hon3, O, On3, prewar and postwar Lionel, prewar American Flyer 3/16 sets and a fantastic assortment of vintage railroadiana to include a 1907 Baldwin Locomotive Works brass boiler plate, several American Locomotive Company plates, original railroad car fire extinguishers, incredible American Locomotive Company framed photographs, some railroad dishes, vintage railroad lanterns and more.  Model trains of note are a Lionel 1950 773 with 2426W tender, Lionel 746 with SS tender in original boxes, many 6464 box cars with original boxes, Lionel Craft No. 44 speed boat in original box, Overland, Key Imports, NWSLWestside and more brass, Q car epoxy resin interurban car bodies, Scale Craft OO kits and built locomotives plus some rare track, Lionel 5F test set, Lionel rivet presses, rare Lionel bobbing head doll factory sample made by Lego (not the Danish guys but a Swiss company with assembly plants in Japan) and dates to between 1961 and 1963 and much much more that will be listed as we get closer to the auction date.

Friday will be a fantastic sale of vintage die cast consisting of primarily vintage pieces that were made prior to 1975 but we will have some nicer newer pieces that will likely be more along the lines of original store displays and the like.  Manufacturers include Mattel, Matchbox, Corgi, Dinky, Solido, Tomica, and others.  We have a lot of work to do before this sale arrives but rest assured, this will be one fantastic sale that any die cast aficionado would not want to miss.  Most pieces are in their original boxes.  The vast majority will be excellent to mint in sealed packages but there are some nice loose pieces.
