Discounted Offer "Mixed Boxes"

DISCOUNTED OFFER “MIXED BOXES”

LIST OF "MIXED" BOXED FIGURES
MADE BY SOLDIERS’ SOLDIERS,
LAMBETH, LONDON, 1973 – 1986

Due to recent bulk purchase, from the estate of a former collector, the following boxes can be offered at an exceptional discounted price. Some boxes are illustrated on the Soldiers’ Soldiers page of our website. All boxes contain 16 figures, all are in good condition.

These soldiers were collected in the late 70’s by an enthusiastic collector who wanted mixed sets. He was a regular visitor to the Soldier Shop in Kennington Road, Lambeth, (the shop appears as the background to the box liner) and would make up his sets from the single figures that were then available. This form of collecting must be unique and there are no other instances of “mixed” boxes being produced for any other client, or ever resold.


Prices: per box of 16 figures only € 99.00

Postage, packing and insurance, extra, at cost.

The numbering of the boxes refers to the mixture of figures contained in the box. Please refer to the full list of Soldiers’ Soldiers box sets in order to identify the contents.

Therefore 297 / 306 refers to a box of 16 figures in which 8 figures are Sikh bandsmen, and a further 8 are Scots.

As these boxes weigh about 1.2 / 1.5 kilo and as the post office charge a flat rate for up to 2.0 kilo, the weight will be made up with individual copies of a variety of military hobby magazines, so that you get full advantage of the postage that you have to pay. No charge, my gift to you.

Putting it another way, I am going to give you FREE military hobby/history magazines to make the weight of your parcel up to just under 2kg, which is the weight that the Post Office charges for, and for which you have to pay, which to Europe, including UK is € 9.20, to the USA € 16.70, and to other destinations € 21.70.

Obviously the more boxes you purchase, the cheaper becomes the postage, per box. Up to 20kg can be sent at any one time, some 13 or 14 boxes. And you’ll still get some “make-weight” magazines, or maybe military buttons, unpainted figures, military prints, or whatever I find in my “Aladin’s cave”.
