Princess darts - these are half the size of the Half Pint darts. I've not included any of the Half Pints in this post as wasn't sure which set to post

Last pics for the moment as now about to watch the darts lol

Not got a clue what they are, but like the Tex darts they come apart and you can store the point inside the barrel for safe transport in your pockets. Another great idea - I actually made up some card flights for these and had a chuck and nearly hit a 180 with them lol

I blame Darren for my interest in collecting lol. I've got a few other bits and bobs as well like signed programmes and whatnot - I'll add some of those here as well over the weekend Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Wow, I know you have a ton more but those are some serious darts. Are you open to trades??? I'll give you one of my kidneys for the Northwood and the Sutus Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Great stuff Mike!, I have a couple of sets of the Tex darts, one set is in the original 1940's box I think they fly quite well too, I think people don't realise just how inventive they were in the early days, some great ideas then and some of the ideas have resurfaced in modern darts like the interchangeable D'art 9 and the DMC Batras Guests cannot see images in the messages.

It no wonder when I go to the flea markets I never find any vintage darts. You have a very nice collection and thanks for sharing. I wonder how long you've been gathering them?

Only about 2.5 years for me - not sure about Darren and Stuart

That's some great darts!
Brilliant set of Tex darts, I've never seen a selection like that.

I took a chance on the Tex's as they weren't described as Tex darts, but they looked similar to others I had seen and a set I had. From memory they only cost £30 or £35 - I don't think the seller realised what they were and just wanted to get rid of them.
