Hello there! For years I have owned a 3 masted ship with ELDON written near the front ...dark brown with cream colored, soft plastic sails.Approx. 21" long. Has the attachable weighted keel for actual water use. It has incredibly detailed rigging and is extremely fragile. Any info available on it would be appreciated...Bud
Sorry, can't find much about Eldon boats. I see a lot of 1 and 2 masted ships though, ranging from 45 to 100 USD.

I have a 1969 eldon Riverside Enduro double loop ho scale road race set that i was given several years ago and i cant seem to find any info on it for a value, it is in good condition with the original box and paperwork, it does work. Thank you for any insite you can provide
Hi Ed, one was offered on eBay in January 2018, but it went unsold. Asking price was $430, so maybe that was a bit too steep.

I have a child's sand bucket with Mickey Mouse on the front. It is soft plastic. Under Mickey it says Walt Disney Productions. On the bottom It says Eldon Los Angeles. I can't find any info about it. Does anyone have any idea how old it is? It looks like maybe the 50s.
