In the 1800’s in Germany it was common for Tin or Tinplate toys to be built and often they were shipped to the United States and beyond because they were light at the cost to ship them was far less than heavier cast iron toys.  As time progressed and automobiles were eventually developed, one company emerged as a leader in building tin toy cars; Gunthermann.

Although this company dissolved in the 1960’s, some of their tin cars are still in great shape today.  Collectors are eager to get their hands on a tin Gunthermann car and prices can exceed $1000 for certain models.
