The hobbyDB and collectible community lost a beloved member earlier this year with the passing of Botho G. Wagner.
Botho, 85, was an avid collector with a notable collection of tin toys that included rarities from Bing and Marklin.
He authored several books on collectibles and toys. Find them on hobbyDB with subjects covering tin toys, Marklin, and Coca-Cola, to name a few. That’s in addition to a book on Kaethe Kruse Dolls that he co-authored with his wife Alice, an expert on the subject.
We’ll never be able to truly thank him enough for believing in us and sharing his passion and expertise as a member of the hobbyDB Advisory Council.
Thank you, Botho.
