When you got back with me, it was the middle of the night here.
Your soldiers are Manoil. Manoil Manufacturing Company was founded in NY in the late 1920s and they started making toy soldier around 1935. They lasted until about 1942 when the War did a lot of companies in. Although they just made soldiers for a short time and were considered "dimestore" toys, they were very popular and considered highly collectible.
Depending on how many pieces you have in your set and their condition, a group of Manoil soldiers can go for between $150 and $500
. For a set of about 20, I'd estimate them around $200 to $250
. If you have an extremely rare soldier, they can fetch between $30 and $60
for a single one. Common soldiers can typically bring between $5 and $12
each. For example, the Flag Bearer generally sells for around $10 to $15.
I'm not sure where you're located, but if you want to try avenues other than auctions, like Ebay, I would check with your local antique shops. There are a number of collectors who deal in old military memorabilia and toys. I would consider visiting any old hobby or toy shops you might have.
You can also try listing it on craigslist
. They're currently free and reach a pretty wide audience. So, you have nothing to lose by trying them out. Etsy
is another good source for selling.
If I can be of any further help, don't hesitate to contact me. Please click accept if I have been of any help, since this is the only way we are compensated by JA.
Thanks and have a great weekend,
