    Default Re: Sad Day - Passing of Toy Soldier Collector

    To All Toy Soldier Collectors,
    I had the unique honor and privilege, while living and working in Southern California in the 1990's, to be invited to dinner by Ed and his lovely wife, and view his collections of toy soldiers and military art. It was before Ed had sold his magnificent definitive collection of vintage W.Britains Ltd toy soldiers. I like most collectors who had that opportunity was just in total awe. A lot of people were not aware that his collection of military art was also a paradigm for private individual collectors in the world. Am not certain why I happen to recall it, but amongst several extremely rare and unique W. Britains Ltd. sets was an example of Set No.1522 4.5in. Anti-Aircraft Gun. Not just a normal single production line model, IT was the original solid brass fully operational prototype. God Bless His Soul,
