The current COVID-19 heath crisis has led many companies to change their practices to bring them into line with the current government safety guidelines. So, for the safety of our customers and our staff, our 16th September 2020 Die Cast, Model Soldiers and Toys sale was a closed-door auction, with no room bidders allowed.

We were however able to offer viewing of the sale on the Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday before the auction, on a strictly by appointment only basis. Unfortunately, we are still unable to welcome the public to view on the morning of the sale.

 

There was a great deal of interest in the auction with many bidders placing book bids and over 60 bidders on the telephone during in the sale.

 

We began with the toys section which included this Lego Creator Town Hall set sold for £216 and this tinplate Wall of Death by an unknown maker realised £90.

 

In the model soldiers section highlights included this Arghiros (Italy) Napoleonic collection of painted silver figures which achieved £480.

 

This Britains Racing Colours of Famous Owners – Mrs McDonald-Buchanan sold for £552 and this Charbens Soap Box Racer Set realised £372.
