Creak's - Peel Collection - Police Items

The Peel Collection consists of scratch built models made by Creaks of Camberley in Police liveries. There were about 15 models made in this series, starting with designation "PC1" which was a mounted policeman on his horse.

The Alternative Collection is a range of model vehicles primarily based on the Matchbox Models of Yesteryear castings. Each model was issued as a limited edition of around 1000 and comes with a certificate of authenticity plus some information on the subject of the model. The models are usually repackaged in their original manufacturer's packaging with only the addition of an end-tab sticker denoting the item belongs to "The Alternative Collection by Creaks of Camberley".

Comments

 I had an old uncle who has now sadly passed away , he left a collection of about 250 matchbox cars still boxed in perfect condition, 

 

Amongst these cars are 40 odd creaks of camberley police cars from the allternitave collection also number one from the peel collection wich is a mounted policeman on a motor bike all boxed with all the correct labels 

 

To be honest the only intrest in these cars i really have is in value are they worth keeping for my sons as a little nest egg

 

Is there anybody who has any knowledge on best way to price these cars or price a full collection 

 

This must sound kind of heartless but i do not have space to keep or display this collection and would be a shame to see it damaged
