Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Canadian Toledo Scale Model 715


I just purchased a Made in Windsor Toledo Scale model 715 The porcelin is in excellent condition but I believe it is missing some of the decals that used to be on it. Can you give me an estimated price and tell me if there is anywhere I can get the decals required for this model scale. Also am I right in assuming this model is from the 1950's

Thanks for your help

Hi Ralph,

The model 715 was used by Toledo in the 1950s to designate a 5 pound capacity, cast iron, porcelain fan top computing scale.  The candy scale computed 2 lbs by 1/2 oz. on the chart and 3 lbs by 1 oz. on the beam. The chart computed 27 total prices from 12 to 80 cents per pound with one cent graduations throughout.  

These candy scales have a retail value of $75-$250 depending on condition.

Decals may be available from Bob here: or Jim here:

Hope this helps.
