My life long collection is for sale..!!
I have collected these models over many years 99.9% are boxed, and have certificates, some never opened, all model cars, buses, trucks ect never been played with.
Most of the 00 Hornby models never been used. Ill health is the main factor behind my sale. So if there are any collectors or wannabe collectors out there take a peak at the picys lots are duplicated lots of rare ones too. You decide. open to offers.
PM for more info.

What a great collection. It's sad that you have to part with them, however, such collector's items over the years do become an asset. I personally, because I've dabbled a bit, would give them over to an Auction House in split lots. There are many collectors of these items out there. I know the Auction houses do take a commission but I think you would do better with them than hoping one or maybe two collectors approach you privately. Where are you advertising them.

Before listening to ANY offers get your collections professionally valued. As advised get in touch with some auction houses who will put similar lots into specialist sales. Some top notch auction houses will give you a reasonable estimate from your photography. Someone taking the job lot will still cherry pick - they would offer a downmarked price bearing in mind they would be "taking stuff of no real value" (TO THEM!!) - these they would then probably put through specialist sales and make a killing at your expense, getting what they DO want cheap and selling what they DON'T want at a profit.
Think carefully about your approach to selling these great collections.

thats a super collection, in pristine condition in the right hands you should make some serious money.
As has been said earlier you should contact one of the big auction houses for a professional valuation.
A lot of the people who did valuations on Antiques Roadshow have their own auction rooms and it might be worth contacting those who had interests in your collection..
İ recently sent a mail to one of them just to say how much İ had enjoyed his presentations (İ'd been watching the old repeats on BBC Prime) and within hours İ had a really nice personal reply..and İ wasnt even buying or selling anything.
