Also poised to cross the auction block are East of India Samurai figures, Edmund’s sets depicting Civil War regiments, many complete and with banners; and a large and diverse King & Country selection representing toy soldiers of every 20th and 21st century war, from World War I through the present-day Afghanistan War.
