I think these little items are unrated. These are made of celluloid back in the 40's or so. Wonderful little pieces that tell a story of everyday life back then. Many of these got tossed out as the tended to dry out a crumble to pieces. I have had a few do that!

    I just bought a set of these from my mother in law..she purchased them in Okinawa years ago, they have been in a large box layered in crumpled newspaper in a heated garage area and not opened in 40+ years, there are probably 30 pieces or more,( I didn't count) and All seem to be in excellent condition. ships, boats ,rickshaw, bridges, figures carrying things, and more. and idea on the value ? thanks, Patt
