First up, just had to share another one of those great Western toys from a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com: "Gunsmoke’s Marshal Matt Dillon" #822, 1960s, by Hartland, 9" tall. Nice!
He's followed by one of the nicest all metal vintage wind-up chicks we've seen in a long time. Your editor had this in the very early 60's (although it could have been a hand-me-down from earlier). Either way, it was one of those great finds from a past Rob and Monica's estate "sale-ing" adventure.
Honestly, some people have all the luck!
And just because they're always worth another look--especially all grouped together--the outstanding cardboard putz house candy boxes of Karl Fey.
The houses on the left and right in the photo are always part of your editor's annual Easter displays.
And finally, an outstanding example of a Germanium Crystal Radio--Vintage Rocketship Germanium Crystal Radio, Made In Japan, Circa 1968. Note the misspelling of "Tuner" on the box. It comes to us courtesy of Joe Haupt aka France 1978---see his outstanding Flickr photo album of vintage toy crystal radios here.
Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
