    The large one looks very much like a 40mm bofors gun shell case. Although I am unfamiliar with the headstamps (look a bit Russian to me?), many countries used such weapons. Cheers.

    These early 50 60s metal hubley planes can start at $40 upwards, there was one for sale in a catalogue that was in a terrible state and the starting bid was $39.99, and collectable items in their own right, think how much Dinky, Matchbox and Corgi vintage cars go for now and it gives some idea as to prices of metal toys
