Can anybody offer any suggestions pls

Postby Katrina Pearce » Thu Jul 13, 2017 4:01 pm

Hi, I have inherited my Dads Dinky, Matchbox & yesteryear. There is quite a collection of Military vehicles of all kinds & a vast amount of Yesteryear. I am ready to sell these on to somebody that will appreciate his collection as much as he did but to be honest I am at a loss as to where to start and I was wondering if anyone could offer any suggestions as to where I maybe able to get this info from?... Thank you.

Look at E-Bay sold listings and auction house realised prices. You will have to register with the auction house (Vectis) to do this, no cost and very simple. Condition is everything, and to get decent money models need to be mint & boxed. It also depends what era the models are from.

Thank you for the info. They are all boxed apart from the military vehicles. Thanks again for your response :)

Hi Katrina.

Before you post any pictures to the forum, can you please reduce them on a computer to about 20% (open them in the 'Paint' program and click 'Resize'), of their actual size or else they will be very large taking a while to load and very difficult for members here to see them properly, thank's.
