Authentication: Purchased from Estate Road show Auctions-From five branches of a Midwestern family in Indiana, toys to be auctioned span 193os-1970s and represent 60 years of collecting. The core of the collection was actually established in the 1950s by the father of the adult sons who are consignors to the May sale. As time went on the sons set out on their own individual collecting path. Each took a different approach to building his collection, but the one important thing they had in common was a love of vintage American toys, primarily of the boomer era.
