  1. San Franfreako in 1968?! You needed that thing to get away---fast.

    Oh and I didn't realize you meant a Nazi motorcycle without the side car. :p

    I agree, don't change it! What I meant is, how unusual to see a pre WWII toy sold in America with the Swastika still intact. I bet, a lot of them had the sticker scraped off, or painted over with a white star. The child dieing explains it all sadly.
     
  3. That pistol is AWESOME! Great find. If you want to thin the collection, you can always send some here. :p

    Here's a question for everybody: This was brought up on a toy collecting forum I'm a member of, and they actually were wondering this themselves: How old does a toy have to be to be considered "vintage"? I know on this board, we're talking Golden Age old, but in general? I've seen toys as little as 20 years old marked as "vintage" on auction and sales sites, which I kinda find odd, because that makes me feel vintage. [huh]
     
  7. If you're a purist the rule of thumb for vintage is anything more than twenty-five years old. And when combined with the definition of antique (more than a hundred years old), it can cover anything from 1916 to 1989. BTW, what toy collecting forum is it?
