Bloomberg reports that KB Toys Inc. co-founder Donald Kaufman is parting with his famous 7,000-piece toy collection.

Among aficionados, the collection of mostly cast-iron vehicles dating back to the 19th century has drawn comparisons to Laurent’s Chinese bronzes.

“In the toy field, this is in the same class,” Dale Kelley, publisher of Antique Toy World magazine, said in a telephone interview from Chicago. “People are never going to get another chance at this stuff.”

Many pieces are valued at more than $10,000. Others have lower price tags, such as a 1961 Cadillac with an estimate between $800 and $1,000. A 1928 Packard four-door sedan is estimated to fetch between $3,500 and $4,000.

“Breathtaking, it’s the darndest thing I’ve ever seen,” Bill Carlton, a dealer in cast-iron toys from Hot Springs Village, Arizona, said in a telephone interview. “Frankly, I don’t know how he can part with them.”

The collection includes a 100-year-old clown car valued at $40,000. Here’s a video of Kaufman’s toy collection from The Franklin Mint. The toys are being auctioned by Bertoia Auctions in Vineland, NJ.
