Hi All

I have been offered a bunch (maybe up to 200) old figures. Most are in their original packages but not mint condition. I have no idea what they are worth and they were his fathers and he has no clue. If I take them I don't want to rip him off. Does anyone have a clue as to what they should sell for roughly?

Here are a couple of pics

Its impossible to say without more info. YouŽd need to list and maybe pghotograph each set seperatly to get a good estimate. Some older figures are not worth the time spent on them, others may have a nice collectors value. Those Barton Miniatures are quite nice ... metal figures with decent detail.
You could check out Ebay and see what prices are, for similar figures. Then its up to you as well ... how much are you willing to pay ... for poor quality figures that didnŽt stand the test of time, unusual figure sets and/or collectors value? You could even calculate in a lower value for bulk buying. I wouldnŽt want to start selling these individually!!
