  Largest Toy Collection: 'Jerni Collection' by Jerry Greene sets world record

 NEW YORK, USA -- A collection of 35,000 vintage toys date from 1850 to 1940 and trains was assembled by the American collector Jerry Greene over a period of 50 years; it include rare, handmade and historically significant European pieces , setting the world record for the Largest Toy Collection.

  The Guinness world record for the Largest collection of sports mascots was set by Adina and Falk Hinneberg (Germany), who has 874 different official sports mascots.

Guinness World Records also recognized the Largest collection of toy soldiers, owned by Sergey Valentinovich Spasov (Russia), who has 661 different toy soldiers.

  "I put it together piece by piece, and my quest for the highest-quality trains and toys took me to thousands of toy fairs and shows" in the United States, Greene said in a statement.

   The World's Largest Toy Collection it's so large that 5,000 pieces alone fill the entire floor of Sotheby's auction house in New York, where they are on display until the end of the month.
  The collector, Jerry Greene, has kept the Largest Toy Collection In The World in five basement rooms of his suburban Philadelphia home, Sotheby's said. He says it's now time to part with it and wants to share it with the world, but wants to find a buyer who will acquire all of it.

   Known as the Jerni Collection, it is considered the largest and most comprehensive toy collection in the world, valued in the tens of millions of dollars, said Sotheby's, which is brokering the sale for Greene. It will not be auctioned.

  The name Jerni combines the first names of the owner and his wife, Nina, Sotheby's said.

  The toys date from 1850 to 1940 and include rare, handmade and historically significant European pieces.

   There are replicas of actual train stations, bridges and buildings destroyed during both world wars. There are also villages, carousels and Ferris wheels.

  They represent some of the best known European and American makers of the golden age of toy manufacturing, including Marklin, Bing, Ernst Plant Carette, and Rock & Graner.

   Sotheby's said Greene hopes a public institution or individual will acquire all the toys and donate the collection to a museum.
