WWI Toy Soldiers

Post by Mike McCrea » Fri Sep 11, 2009 10:09 am

Hey Guys,
I have what I think are 6 un cut sheets of 1916 dated cardboard toy soldiers. These look to be of the WWI French Army, lots of subtle history in these. I can find a little info but not much. I don't know if that means they are rare or just un common. I was hoping someone here would know more about collecting toy soldiers and have some info. here are some pics..they are printed on both sides, front and back poses. Thanks for any help.

Another pic on how they are to be folded for them to stand.

Kids generally play with their toys, so I would think these would be rare considering their age.
Just a guess on my part.

Roy is correct,

Collectors of toy soldiers would love these, I am no expert in this field but they would have to be rare.
