John Kinchen's collection of Dinky toy cars has realised £150,000 ($212,918).
It crossed the block at Piers Motley Auctions in Exmouth, UK on June 13.
The sale featured around 3,500 rare pieces, including a rare Leyland Octopus flat truck with chains that realised £2,300 ($3,265).
Expert Bob Leggett explained to the BBC: "When we were young we didn't have as many toys as people have today and therefore they were treasured much more…
"The golden era of Dinky Toys was probably the 1950s to the 1960s and there's a lot of people who are retiring in their late 60s who are still collecting, and they have disposable income, they're the baby-boom generation."
