What was once a child’s prized collection of 1960’s toys has been discovered gathering dust in a local attic.

toysThe stash of Corgi diecast models retain their original boxes and must have been cherished by the owner as they are in exceptionally good condition, a rarity with most vintage toys.

Highlights from the collection include a gift set No. 17, Land Rover hauling a Ferrari and a Power Major tractor with ‘roadless’ halftracks.

TV/film related Corgi/Dinky models are especially sought after and included here is the iconic boxed James Bond Aston Martin DB5 from ‘Goldfinger’, a Batmobile and a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car with four figures.

The collection is going under the gavel at Richard Winterton’s Lichfield two-day Antiques, Homes & Interiors Auction next week, (18th and 19th December). Viewing is on Tuesday 17th from 2pm to 7pm and Sale days from 9am. Pre-sale estimates range from £50 to over £200.
