Just got today 2 elephants, both missing their right tusk.

May I know what year is the date on the second elephant?  I have this with the year removed, I believe.  There is a scratch wherein the date should be.  Printed are the ff: BRITAINS LTD.  ENGLAND REG DES No. 918374

My other Elephant has its trunk raised up different from your first elephant, but same details, with the ff prints: encircled C 1972 BRITAINS LTD ENGLAND

TIA!

The date as marked on the first elephant is "1981".  As for the second one, there is also no date on it.  The wordings are exactly the same as you mentioned.  Please show us your Britains collection  ;)

Thanks a lot, Fukuiraptor! And Congrats on your new British Ltd figures.

Will try to take pictures, if time allows.

I have always liked Britains Animals, but their small size, and more niticable, their price makes it so I never bought any.

Few new Britains arrived to my collection too :) They are all so small  ^-^ I like the springbok most, I don't know other figure of this species  8)



Correction
: I just got the info about the monkey, it is only copy of Britains. Original monkey was in different color (grey with painted face) and made on better plastic...

Great finds, Ana!  I also like the springbok much.  Its paint application is relatively detailed in Britains' standard  ;) Is there any marking of words on your little monkey?  My chimpanzee figures does not carry any marking but I was told it is a Britains figure  ???

I've noticed one of the Britains Ltd polar bears looks similar to my AAA polar bear.

Here are the elephants with missing right tusks:


Britains Ltd African Elephant


Britains Ltd Asian Elephant - 1972

TFL!  :)

Beautiful elephants!  I seem to have the Asian elephant figure as well but the bad thing is I am not sure if I really have it.  More importantly, if I really have it, I can't remember where I have put it  :P

Thanks Fukuiraptor!  :)

Most probably you have it, since you have most of them.

Beautiful carded pieces... Congratulations!

they are gorgeous, Fukuiraptor. (i have made-in-hong-kong copies of the ostrich, african elephant and the bactrian camel.)

As far as I know, Hong Kong made toys are considered vintage and collectible since they were under British rule, so Congrats on having them, Sauroid.  Would like to see photos of them too! :)
