Franklin Mint Precision Automobile Models

Franklin Mint Precision Automobile Models - Franklin Mint originally a private mint founded by Joseph Segel in 1964 in Wawa, Pennsylvania. Besides diecast automobiles, the Franklin Mint manufactured and marketed coins, jewelry, dolls, sculpture and other collectibles.

In 1983, after Warner Communications had purchased the Franklin Mint, the company entered the die-cast diecast vehicle market introducing a 1935 Mercedes Benz 500K Roadster. In the following years, Franklin Mint produced more than 600 different issues of motorcycles, trucks and tractors besides automobiles. Marketing of all vehicles was almost exclusively through mail order catalogs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Mint_Precision_Models
