Britains 'Vintage' Series

Recommended Posts

As requested in another topic I?ve started to photograph the Britain?s ?Vintage? Series.  Hopefully over the coming weeks I?ll add photos of all 16 of the models that were part of this series. 

The brand name of the series varied during the period of issue.  Initially called in the catalogue the Vintage Farm series, the first 7 were branded ?Home Farm?.  Then the Ferguson TE-20 was issued without any branding and then the next 3 reverted to ?Home Farm?.  Then we had the Fordson E27N issued with branding of ?Vintage Tractor?.  This was followed by the David Brown 900 and Land Rover Series 1 which were branded ?Vintage Farm?, followed by the Marshall M as a ?Vintage Vehicle? and back to ?Vintage Farm? for the Lanz.  Why the changes?  Only Britains knows.

All models were issued in quality card boxes (coloured green for the Home Farm and blue for the vehicles) and were packed individually in a white card outer box for protection.  Each model was held in the box by a profile cut foam liner.

All of the Home Farm models were cast in white metal and hand painted (in England).  The Ferguson and Fordson were also produced in England but the David Brown, Land Rover, Marshall and Lanz were all produced in China.

The entire Series consists

His postage prices are extremely high.  BTW all of mine will be for sale at some point.  If anyone's interested just let me know.

They're charming little sets :)

Haven't really taken notice of them before, I like the plough set best  :-*

What sort of price do they generally go for in good condition?

November on eBay ploughing set sold for ?110.00 while the mill set sold for ?20.00.  Seen a few pn a couple of other auction sites but did not check on final sale values.

Thanks Sue :)  That much for the ploughing set eh :o

Win some, lose some but I find if something went last month for a high price a new listing rarely makes the same.  I notice another FTF member is been bidding on the latest one which is currently at ?15.00
