FOR SALE: Large Blue/Yellow/Zinc Meccano Collection
Attached are representative pictures of some of my collection. Also there is a Meccano Parts List which is complete. The collection comprises 1970s Blue/Yellow/Zinc format. I would estimate there is the equivalent of THREE Number 10 sets. About 75% of parts are original and 25% reproduction (e.g. the Geared Roller Bearing). Many of the parts, especially the circular blue parts and the strip plates are in mint condition. I want to sell the collection as one package. I value the collection at well over $10,000.

WANTED: Meccano cartons, 1950’s and older, any condition, contact Ron Bodnar
at firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 1-780-446-7652.
FOR SALE: If you are a collector of Marklin, this set may
interest you. This is set 1034 which is an accessory set for set
1014 from the 40s/50s. I purchased it for parts but now hate to
break the set up. This set does not come with a manual as the
manual came with set 1014. As far as I know set 1014 with set 1034
was the largest set Marklin produced at the time. I am looking for
$725. Contact Hans Pape at email@example.com or call 905-722-9582.
WANTED: I need a large quantity of old, broken, incomplete red set boxes, lids, trays, stringing cards from the Meccano period from the 1940’s to the 60’s. Will take a nice red box too!
This is an excellent way to be “green” and recycle all the boxes and bits every Meccanoman has and can’t bear to throw out. I use these boxes and parts in restoration efforts.
The large the box surface area the better! That includes larger sets’ boxes. I will take orphaned bases, lids, etc. The large parts with the yellow innards are used for making stringing cards, etc. I would also not refuse any black cartons from the 20’s and 30’s too in whatever condition. Larger the better for surface area …
I will pay for postage of course…
