I have been fortunate to have been in contact with people who shared similar interests in toy rings.
Over the years they have added to my understanding of these collectibles as well as offering opinions and encouragement. First and foremost is Michael George another avid collector. Over the last several years he has provided me with sharing of ideas, information, pictures, and opinions. Next is the well-known and published Ted Hake of Hakes Americana and Auction house. He has demonstrated a format to use for ring information. As an authority, he has been kind enough to review and verify my collection. Joe Statkus of flicker ring fame has been a valuable source of information. Howard Weinberger has published the Toy Ring Journal allowing a forum for advancing the hobby. A thank you page would be incomplete without acknowledging the works of Robert “Bob” Overstreet. He spearheaded and created the best of the Toy ring price guides. Last is John Snyder a collector who worked for Gemstone Publishing. He spent hours reviewing and debating issues in the ring world.
