Seems like I have been collecting something all of my life. Started with stamps and coins when I was younger - have collected cameras, carnival chalk, tools, can openers, guns, etc. The last 10 years or so, have been collecting toys. Started with antique German tin toys, specifically J.L. Hess / Nuremberg. Also steam engines primarily Fleischmann and Empire, but also have others. Collect Knapp Electric Novelty Company toys. Two websites up (have not been updated in a while) www.hesstintoys.info for the German tin toys and www.knappelectricnovelty.info for electric toys and workshops. Am a member of the Antique Toy Collectors of America.
