Excellent.

Thank you for getting back to me with those photos.

The Mickey Mouse toy box dating to them id 1960's would in fact be a collectible piecethat has touched auctiom highs of 180USD to as low as 60USD based on the overall condition.

The McCoy jar, is also collectible. The piece is an example of a "bean pot" produced in a drip glaze. In the current market it would have a resale value of between 20-35USD based on the overall condition.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank
