Large collection of tin flats, looking for information

Posted by puckett34 on 03 Jul 2019, 17:15

Hello,

I am new to the forum and was hoping someone could help me to identify some tin flats that I just purchased. I haven't been able to find much information about them, but they are really cool and I believe they have their original boxes. I have about 90 boxes of these figures, roughly 6,000-7,000 pieces I would say. I have a few lots listed on ebay and they have lots of pictures in them. Below are the urls of some of the listings. Any help would be appreciated. I know they are german, but that's about all I know.

Hello,

Not trying to sell, just looking for information. I put in the description of the eBay listing of what I thought they are, but I am not sure. Do you know what company made these? When they were made? If they are the original boxes? I put the eBay links since I figured it would be easier than uploading a ton of photos.

Hello,

I just got a large lot of tin figures and I am trying to find out more info. on them. How old are they, who made them, if the boxes are original? I made a quick video to show you what I have. Any help would be appreciated.

Please do not start a new thread with the same subject
It would be better to post pictures instead of just links

Ok, not trying to cause any issues. I just couldn't figure out how to get the images to work so I just made a quick video.

My advice to any Member or Anyone else, is simply Google what is printed upon the boxes. BB

Yea I tried that but didn't have any luck. The labels are in german and I am not sure if they are labels from the manufacturer, or the person that originally owned them.

I recognized some of them, but I have no idea obut their origins. It looks like a very nice collection! Maybe some of our German sellers can know.

Thanks for the reply, yea they are really cool figures. I searched for hours and learned a good amount about tin flats, but still don't really know much about my specific figures.
