Now this is one of the most outstanding 1950's tin toys we have ever seen. Sold at a previous auction at Croton's own Serioustoyz for $258.75--the graphics are amazing. YOU CAN SEE ANOTHER GREAT PIECE FROM TECHNOFIX HERE.
It followed by a fab die-cut vintage Christmas card--why oh why can't they make them like this any more! And then by one of our fave TV Guide covers of all time: the 1965 "TV Guide" featuring "The Munsters", January 2nd, 1965 (includes Mention of Upcoming Show Named "Star Trek"). Featured in a previous auction at Croton's own Serious Toyz, it sold for $32.20
And finally, an antique Belgian toy train village courtesy of Thomas Quine.
