    Aren't they early bricks from the 50's? I had some, mainly red and white and threw them out years ago :(

    Hi Stuart9, welcome. I also have in interest in early Lego bricks. I have mostly Samsonite CA bricks but have picked up a few slotted bricks and hollow brick over years. I don't have a lot of color variations, maybe a third of what you have. I've got old close "O" font, bar bell, and two types of block logos and some logoless bricks. I've also got some old types of windows and doors. About half of what I've got is loose and the other half are with sets.

    Hi everyone,these are the original lego bricks of the 1950's as some have suggested.
    I know you won't want to hear this but they are clones of the original Automatic Binding Brick made by Hilary Page,the company Kiddicraft of London.
    Some types of bricks were also produced in France.
    These early bricks are often referred to as Mursten bricks,they come in a huge range of colours and shades,including stunning marbled versions.
    Sadly they distort easily and most are now no use in building,mainly for collectors these days.
