Found these two toy steam engines at an estate sale, no makers name or others markings? They look like they are 1950s vintage and were working at some point in time. Any help as always will be much appreciated. THANKSsteameng 004a.jpg

Help with toy steam engines 1950s vintage

So I have an unopened one of these. The final Lesson, The Last Battle. It is in pretty good condition. Amazon has them at prices from $380-$500+. This can't be right. Anyone know what the real going rate is on these?

It's been over a month now and the new system is not working for wargames at all.

 

The previous category allowed wargamers to easily browse through the 10,000-15,000 wargames are tyically listed on eBay at any given time, confident that this search was reeling in well over 95% of what was out there. You could check closing and newly listedi tems efficiently.

 

The new system lumps wargames in with all manner of other games. This forces the wargamer to either wade through 200,000 to 400,000 plus items [depending on what caetegory chosen], or resort to time consuming item-searches in the broader Toys & Hobbies - something you used to reserve for fine-tuned searches only.

 

The 'War' Theme filter is worse than useless - it filters out almost all wargames.

 

It's time to bring back a simple War Board Game category sot everything is under one roof again.

Kewpie doll ?

I purchased these a few years back at local flea market. Even the lady that I bought them from had know idea what they were used for. They are cast iron, and the length is 8 3/4". They aren't sharp enough to cut anything, and almost to fat to be letter openers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
