Almost everyone will be able to remember playing with a toy car or plane as a child and nostalgia is an important factor in collecting diecast models.
Children of the 1950’s and 1960’s will remember Corgi and Dinky Toys. If you grew up in the 1970’s then Matchbox models could remain a favourite. Makes from around the world such as Britains, Crescent, Diapet, Marklin, Norev, Shackleton, Spot-On, Tekno and others remain popular with collectors. Some sell for tremendous prices at auction, especially if the condition is good, the original box is included and any accessories are present.
Modern manufactures such as Autoart, Hotwheels/Mattel, Minichamps, Onyx, Sparks and others also sell very well at auction, with some being made to incredibly accurate specifications.
