This marvelous War Bond Window display, with village and train, comes to us from the Canadian vintage Christmas collecting contingent, courtesy of the Huron Museum, no known copyright restrictions. A beaut!
It's followed by a wonderful piece of Marx tinplate: the Marx Dick Tracy police station, 1952 from a previous auction at Croton's own Serioustoyz.com
It sold for over $590! 6 x 9", car is 7.5”; crank handle, "the doors fly open
& the squad car dashes to the rescue"; car has minor roof dents
& 2 small paint chips; station has typical warping to plastic, o/w
NM in colorful C7.5 box w/ all inserts, a scarce toy in this condition. If you have serious stuff, SeriousToyz has serious bidders!
