Jamie Linford went to a special amount of trouble to photograph Tom Winge's collection. He also told me that it is pronounced: "WIN jeeee." Of course, me being what these "Super Collectors" would consider a neophyte, I don't know enough about a lot of these to properly say much about them. And besides, there are so many photos, that I think that I'm just going to let some of the photos speak for themselves. Tom called me on the phone and explained many of them. You might notice that 100% of Tom's collection is cast-iron. I asked him why and he said it was just from his time.

Sadly, I was informed that Tom passed away on May 5th, 2012. We of the Cap Gun Community are really going to miss one of our greatest collectors.

The radio on the right is a Lone Ranger radio that is extremely rare!

The radio on the right is a Lone Ranger radio that is also extremely rare!

You will notice that these are the Lone Ranger on his horse Silver and they are on rockers.

Lone Ranger pocket watches.

This is a WALL of cast-iron Cap Guns with various grips! Amazing! And a Fargo Express that is in Backyard Buckaroos!

There's a little of everything here.

More of those cast-iron guns.

Here's Tom Winge and Chuck Quinn.

Boxes of caps and a photo of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and says, "For Tom Mix, from his friend, Franklin D. Roosevelt." The elliptical photo below is a photo of Tom Mix and his wife Victoria.

That photo in the background is Tom Mix. The toy standing up is Gene Autry.

This Cap Gun is extremely rare.

A big bunch of Bang-O's, C-Boys. On the left are two programs from Gene Autry's Western Show in the Empress Hall in London, England and the double barreled pop-gun is from the show and it is labeled as such. Behind it are the tickets to the show. Monday, August 17th, 1953 at 7:30 pm Row "S" Seat 7. Quite rare!

Same group, just a little farther to the right. The doll of Gene Autry is pretty rare and is a composition statue from the 1930's.

Here's a good close-up of the Fargo Express (at the bottom)—the one in the middle has the sticker that says that it doesn't shoot caps and is an American. The one right above the Fargo Express is an unusual finish, 2nd model cast-iron; the entire gun was black finish except for the trigger and the hammer and the raised engraving was bright nickel.
