Heyde Soldiers?

Hello,

I was wondering if you could tell me anything about these soldiers. They are for sale and the only info I have is the attached photo and the sellers guess they are Heyde. Do you know who made them, or their age? The attached pictures are all I have to go on. Any info is appreciated.

Thanks, Dave.

Possibly they are made by Heyde of Germany. Prussian soldiers of 1880. Maybe 54mm in height, possibly hollow cast. The book Hollow Cast Soldiers by Joplin might help, if you can find a copy.
