An evocative collection of Meccano is to be sold by Lawrences Auctioneers of Crewkerne.
The collection was assembled by a gentleman in Devon over the course of a lifetime and it includes a wide variety of the boxed construction sets that made Meccano’s reputation. In particular there are three large sets in wooden cases - Outfit Numbers 6, 7 and 9 - an unused French Meccano set and a wide variety of other boxed sets including two that have never even been opened.
Lawrences Auctioneer Simon Jones said, “Meccano has always been highly collectable and it always attracts great interest in auction. The condition of many of these sets is amazing given their age and that will encourage keen interest from enthusiasts.”
Estimates vary from £50-£500, and the collection will be included in Lawrences May Collectors Sale on Friday 12th May. For further details about this sale please contact Simon Jones on 01460 73041.
