What does this mean?

Dear Betty,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be convolute of two tin toys from the WWII period made by Unique Arts Manufacturing Co in the USA. The names of the toys are "G.I. Joe and his Jounicing Jeep" and "G.I. Joe & the K-9 Pups". Both tin toys are printed with lithographs and have a wind-up mechanism.
This piece is in medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation for the "G.I. Joe and his Jounicing Jeep" would be between 100 to 250 USD.
A fair market estimation for the "G.I. Joe & the K-9 pups" would be between 100 to 180 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
