The Numbering of the Fernand Martin First Period: Who can help me ??
By Cor van Schaijk
I’M TRYING TO FIGURE out the correct numbering of the first period of the Fernand Martin toys, that is the period from the first toy “Le Poisson Nageur” (the Fish) till number 146, the second period started with the number 147 the Ma Portiére.
The periods have been chosen in previously published books and articles by well known authors, because every Martin collector knows this period classification, I will also continue with this period classification. Martin himself never made a period classification.
In this article there will be a lot of “question marks” – “maybe” – “presumably” and “not sure” but therefore the question: WHO CAN HELP?
