    To get back on track I'll post this pic. I purchased each of those for a
    dollar and less. Of course, that was in the early '80s.

  2. I had a 68 Vette in high school { 1970 } I would stop, and get a $1. worth of gas. And cruise the town all evening. I still have it. But they were the good old days! 052.jpg 042.jpg An old { American Airlines } tin plane.
     
  3. I posted this one before but you may have missed it. This was from a company in Detroit that supplied among other things striping paint. The powder was in the top(I believe;I haven't opened it)and the clear was in the bottom. VECOStripingLacquerPowder&Clear.JPG VECOStripingLacquerThinner.JPG

    Just a few recent acquisitions...
     
  6. Picked a tall toy today so I could sneak in the two shell quart oil bottles I refound yesterday. The picture didn’t do either justice. 44F79DE6-B165-4570-82E1-CBDA0E1332FC.jpeg
     
  7. Took a couple more inside. Lincoln power shovel made in Tilbury Ontario.

  8. So Ron F you are pretty well versed, how common are these Lincoln toys in the USA? I am guessing I see them as they were made locally.

  9. Ha ha, I'm not all that well versed. I'm more like a kid that never stopped collecting toys. If I find something that I like. It doesn't matter if it's rare or common. I wish that I could be more help. It's probably rarer here in the states? It looks like a fun toy to put on the shelf, and look at. Or just play in the sand box with the grandkids. But a Cool find for sure!:) Thanks Ron........
     
  10. No grand kids yet for me, thanks for the reply. These toys are close to the 1/16 scale that farm toys use, really nice size for playing with, and a nice size for a shelf someday.

    Lincoln toys was a direct competitor of Marx and Wyandotte and made similar size and style toys. Not really a whole lot of info on the Company...other than this.

    Yeah Ron, we're cut from the same cloth. I was a spoiled rich kid and I destroyed my toys...cuz I knew I would just get more. The difference is, You KEPT yours;)
    PS. Oh that poor Nomura '56 Wagon:( I do see a lot of good hubcaps in your junkyard though...hubcaps are worth more than gold in the Japan tin world...they're always missing.

    Recently picked up this tin Nylint "Spoofer" car. Missing several parts but I found enough spare model parts to give the car a new life.
