1 Marx 6 Wheel Tractor
Nice clean piece. Rarer style with the 6 wheels.
Rubber treads are original and not all dry rotted out.
The key is not present so we do not know if the mech
works or not. Comes with the original driver. Nice
bright colors on it.
2 Marx Turnover Tank
Different than the ones you normally see. The cannon is
missing on it. Unusual red US soldier that pops up from
the turrent. No key to check on how the mech works.
Shows some wear from use and storage but not abused.
3 Fisher Price 544 Donald Duck Cart
All original. There is some wear here and there. Came
out the same estate as the other toys that are from the
mid to late 40s. The arms move with no problems. The
paper litho is nice with full bright colors.

All original. Comes with metal ladders. Shows wear
from use and storage. Made out of pressed steel.
5 Buddy L and Wyandotte Part Truck Lot
The Buddy L was repainted. The Wyandotte is missing the
back part. Hard truck is either Marx or Wyandotte.
Good for parts for restoration.

the only thing from the estate I could find. Has some
wear on it from storage. I do not have the key to test
the mech on it.
7 Fisher Price 198 Band Wagon
All original as it came out of the original owners
estate. For a 60 70 year old Fisher Price the paper
litho is nice on it. The back wheels are loose. They
also rubbed into the liho in that area which is to be
expected. Still makes the sounds as it moves.
8 Fisher Price 525 Peter Cottontail with Cart
All original as it came out of the original owners
estate. There is some staining on some parts of it.
Legs still move. Litho stil retains full color.
9 WWII US Army Wooden Military Vehicles
They are in various stages of completeness. They are not
Buddy L’s since they are stenciled and Buddy L’s are
decaled. Also they wheels are different on Buddy L’s.
The grill on the large jeep is cracked and it is missing
some of the front bumper. All for one money.

The army car is really cool with the decals still on the
doors. They all have some kind of issue i.e warping or
like the red car some chips here and there out of the
body. All for one money.
13 Buddy L Army Truck and Trailer
They are slightly different meaning the wheels on the
truck are wooden. The trailer has rubber wheels. There
is 2 different trucks. The one that is painted blue
actullay went with the trailer. I didnt see it right
away when I did the photos and descriptions. When I got
to the blue truck I looked at the Buddy L area to see
what kind of truck it was. The original decal is there
for the army truck. Missing everything else. In
played with condition.

tape is on the ladder. Possiblilty that is cracked.
16 Buddy L Wooden Combat Car
The axle for the front wheels is missing. Decals are
fairly nice. Has some wear from use and storage.
17 Buddy L Wooden Tank
Not sure if it had a piece under the turrent. On the
inside there is a black wooden piece. I cant get to it
without ripping apart the tank to see if that piece
moved and that is why the turrent does not sit right.
There is a chip out of the front (looking at it) right
tread area. Dont see the tank too often.

being played with and storage.
21 Marx Car Carrier w Cars
All original with cars and two ramps. Has some wear
from use. Made out of pressed steel.

23 Parker Brothers 30s 40s Old Maid

eis a chip out of the front bumper.

done for the time it was made.

They are the version that are slightly bigger at roughly
8 inches. They have some wear on them from use and
storage. They all have wooden wheels.

I could not find a maker mark on them. Too well done
with the stencil like paint job to be home made. The

in length. They have wear on them from storage and use.
Both for one money.

parts lot. The large race car the center of the body is

money. Trumpet is msade by T Conn.

some warpage to the bottom of the grips. Functions well.
32 Lone Ranger Cheerios Town Pieces
There is a roughly a shoe box size box full of them.
But they are in various states. Made out cardboard that
came off the back of the cheerios box. There is one map
layout of the town. I didn’t try to open the layouts
since they feel very dry and likely to rip when opened.
33 Marx Boxed Army Staff Car
I saw this and I was like WOW. Thing is almost dead
mint. The box is really nice with some rips in the
flaps on the tabs that lock it in. The instructions for
the car is there. THE RARE INSTRUCTIONS. Car looks
like it was never used. I hate grading toys I would
grade this roughly at 8.5 ot a 9 since there is some
very very light surface rust on the on off switch for
the battery and the bar that helps hold the battery in
place. Most of the time when you find this style of car
it is usually a dick tracy or a fire chief. Its a
beauty. I wound up the key wind. All the way and it
didnt go at first. I barely touched the back tire and
off she went. I didnt try the battery compartment to
see if that works.
34 Western Saddle Bag for a Boys Bicycle
Made out of harden leather. Has wear on it from storage
and use. Leather is stiff. Western motiffs all through
it. Buckles have rust on them.

made by yankiboy. In played with condition but not
36 Pirate Western Hopalong Cassidy Costumes
The hoppy item is a tie. There is masks that look like
the lone rangers. The cowboy hat is generic western
design. The one cap has wheat pennies on it. The newest
one is 1947 and the oldest is 1926. All for a child. I
would have opened the pirate’s costume but when I picked
up the shirt item it crackled. So it is brittle. I left
everything else alone.
37 Marx Builders Truck
Under 12 inches in length. Only have the truck. In
played with condition. All the wheels are there for it.
38 Rich Toy Borden Horse Drawn Milk Delivery
Nice version of it. Has wear on it from use and storage

wooden carrier. There is a chip on the roof on the back
driver side of the toy. Nice colors that are still
full. Missing the 2 back wheels for the horse.
39 Kingsbury Greyhound Bus
Weird coloring on it. Usually it is grey and blue.
This one is brown and tan. The wheels are warped and
hard from age. The key wind has sprung. You can wind it
up and some it catches and sometimes it doesn’t. In
played with condition. Missing a red light on the sign
area on the front on the top.

them. All for one money.
46 Slatington School Slate Board
Made out of local Slatington. Not cracked or chipped.
Neast piece of local history.
47 Ethan Allen’s All Star Baseball
Well Joe Dimaggio is in there. So the set has to be
before 1951. No Michey Mantle . All four pegs are
there. Used but not abused. No split corners on the
box. Copyrighted 1942. But if I remember correctly
Jackie Robinson didn’t come onto the scene until 47.
48 Boxed Bill Ding Clown Wooden Block Set
The box is all but gone. Very dirty from storage. The
blocks are really nice.
