Auctioneers Greenslade Taylor Hunt are rightly renowned for their quarterly collectors' sales and the next keenly anticipated event takes place on Friday, September 7.

Fans of model cars will be spoilt for choice at the auction, as no fewer than three private collections have been consigned to the sale, each of them built up over many years by long term enthusiasts.

Hand-built white metal cars will be included in the September auction, and models by well-regarded German maker CMC will also feature. This firm is noted for its 1/18 scale racing cars.

The sale follows a successful online only offering of automobilia, which attracted a good quantity of buyers. The auctioneers are currently accepting entries for a similar auction in November.

The collectors' sale at The Octagon Salerooms, East Reach, Taunton, will also feature a selection of railwayana. Of local interest is a Taunton station totem sign.

Interesting early cigarette cards, postcards, coins, medals and militaria will also go under the hammer at the September sale as well as a good collection of dolls and teddy bears.
