Should You Collect Tinplate Toys?
Well, based on recent auction results it could be a good idea. On 20th April, 2012 Special Auction Services auctioned a Marklin tinplate battleship, the final hammer price £76,000. And in Oct, 2010 the Marklin steam powered tinplate battleship Decidee was sold at auction on an estimate of $10,000 to $15,000.

the Marklin battleship HMS Terrible was the star of the show, realising £76,000, a British auction record for a toy. Another Marklin vessel, the impressive ocean liner Carmania, sold for £24,000, making an impressive pair at a round £100,000
