3000 Lots in Collectoys Auction November 16 & December 6-7

BOURGES, France – This winter, COLLECTOYS auction house’s much-anticipated year-end auction event will be held November 16 and December 6-7, with 3000 lots of select consignments primarily from prestigious Swiss and Italian late collectors.

The auction lineup for the first two sales is led by two revered collections – The Goodman collection from Geneva and the Don Rambaldi collection from Milano – The first two sessions will represent “la creme de la creme” of the European tinplates amassed since 40 years by both collectors above.

“Right now, the list would be too long,” Phil Salmon, Collectoys’ chairman and Managing director says. “I think everyone is going to be very stunned to note the rarity and the quality of the items from Germany, Italy, Japan and France. No additional words. Simply have a look at the catalogue. Pictures speak by themselves. I think these two sales will fascinate and seduce hobbyists the world over!”
