A collection of toys which date back to the 19th Century have gone under the hammer for more than £11,000 at an auction in East Sussex.
The toys have been in Terry Smith's family for years
Tinplate tram cars, dolls and clockwork trains were included in the collection.
Terry Smith, whose family owned the toys, said: "I couldn't believe people would pay as much as they have for some rusty old toys."
It is one of the finest single-owned collections of toys to go under auction at Gorringes in Lewes.
The toys had been in Mr Smith's family for years. His mother's cousin collected them throughout his life.
The collection dates from 1880 to World War II.
The oldest toy in the sale was a rare French 19th Century carpet train which would have been pulled along by a piece of string.
Mr Smith said: "It's a nice collection, people will love it and I think it was the right thing to do. I think it should go where people like it."
The toys were sold individually to a number of collectors.
