Passing this along:

I was left three old lead soldiers (look to be in very good shape). Appear to be French officers on horseback. Detachable from the horses. But at the base of each horse is a small bee imprinted on the base. Barely recognizable, but clearly a bee. Can you help me determine if this is anything of worth?

I'm almost sure they are miniatures from Lucotte, who used the "Imperial Bee" as its trademark. If so, they are collector's pieces.
