LOT #1:
Finally my largest offering will be my William Britain hollow cast collection from 1937 to 1961. Consisting of some 24 bands running from mint boxed to no box complete sets. It is my personal opinion that this collection must be viewed in person to be appreciated. Arrangements will be made for serious buyers to stay with me and view them on an overnight visit. Reasonable offers will be considered at that time.
