    WW1 toy soldiers.

    Found these at a local antiques mall yesterday. Barclay brand I believe. Sold in the 20's at five and dime stores. Pretty cool I think. A new collection has started. Lol!

    They are really neat! I've been into 1/72 soldiers since I was a kid. They were my favorite toys growing up. Over time, my collection grew to over 19,000 ranging from ancient Egyptian to modern (well, 1980's modern anyways).

    19,000, Holy Cow!!! I have a long way to catch up. Lol!

    I really do like these and have already started the search to extend my collection.

    Neat find, hope you have the space to start a new hobby - can't leave them in a box (LOL).

    I have very little space left. Good thing these are small!

    Neat stuff there. Used to see those sometimes when I was a kid, but not very often. Always someone's old uncle or other family member had them kept over from childhood tucked away.... Only a few survivors of distant memories. Good find Scott.

    Thanks! On the lookout for more now. Have two coming from ebay and going back to the antiques mall soon to search more thoroughly. I'll keep this post updated with new finds. Fun stuff!

    So, I went back to the same antiques mall and found two more! A sailor and an aviator. My collection is growing fast. Awesome!
