oliver_munich: Hello from Munich Germany

Hi guys,

my parents lately moved out of their house, giving me a huge box full with bricks.

i’m trying to fit the sets together now, and show them here. which is fun.

it is mostly stuff from the 80s, and also stuff from one gereation before (my uncles own sets from before 1977)

the progress is already going on, i built 9 sets so far. i put them on my list on here.

as my intentions are not to collect the sets, but sell them, i’d be very happy about every supporting comment from you, especially identifiyng the parts i have and maybe taking a look at my collection.

i crawled through the list, up to 1989 now, twice. is the listing on here complete? are there any ealiler sets, before 1965?

cool to be here.

    Welcome to the forum, Oliver !

    As far as I'm aware, the Brickset database doesn't contain any information about sets released before 1964, and only 1 set from before 1965. Resident Brickset Forum LEGO historian and mine of information Gary - @istokg - might be able to answer any questions you might have about older sets, however...

    Thanks for the kind words drdavewatford!!

    Oliver.... Servus! Ich bin auch von Bayern.... aber von nordlichsten teil... "Die Fränkische Krone"... Coburg.

    I too am (originally) from Bavaria (lived in the USA for over 40 years)... from Coburg in the far north of Bavaria.... the most "English" of all regions of Germany (birthplace of Queen Victoria's mother as well as Royal Albert).

    If you need any help or have any questions about the early years of LEGO, be it sets or parts... I will be more than happy to help and answer any questions (usually in 1000 words or less! ;-)

    I am finishing up an Encyclopedic history... Unofficial LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide 1949-90s (on CD) with over 70 chapters... and when I am done with that, I have already mentioned to Huw and the Admins that I will help filll all the early years in the Bricklink guide from 1949-65.

    From late 1955 (when LEGO sales were first tested in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein) until 1999 the LEGO capital of Germany was the small town of Hohenwestedt, near the Danish border. But since 1999 the LEGO capital of Germany has been in the southern metropolis of Munich, where you live...

    Feel free to ask any Lego related questions!

    Willkommen an Brickset!!

    @istokg: würdest du mal einen blick werfen auf mein posting im identifizierungs-thread?

    habe gerade massenweise fotos gemacht.
    gerne sende ich per pm auch einen gesamtüberblick, ich habe alle steine übersichtlich geordnet und auch ein paar fotos von allem zusammen gemacht.

    ich wär superhappy wenn dabei was herauskommt. bin die liste rauf und runtergetigert, aber sehr viele interessante sachen konnte ich leider einfach nicht finden.

    would you like to take a look at my post in the id-category?

    thanks so much for your help!
