Vtg 1940s Marx Sparkling Tank Tin WU Wind-Up Toy with Original Box. From a high-end tin wind-up toy collection comes another vintage piece.
Up for sale is a 1 940s era tin windup "Sparkling Tank, " made by L ouis Marx Toys. It comes in its original box, with some wonderful vintage graphics both on the box and on the tin litho itself! I believe they also produced a "Turn-over Tank" version of this toy later. It measures about 4 inches long, 3 1/4 inches wide, and 2 3/4 inches tall. The colorful little tank has the number five printed on the front, and the Marx logo on the back of the gunner station.The maker s mark reads. MADE IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This old toy is in original condition with just some v ery slight sc uffing and wear as shown. Litho colors are still crisp and vibrant , almost like new old stock /NOS. The spring is still strong, and it rolls along just fine when wound, but no sparks are coming out of the guns I dont know if the flints are worn down, or if whatever technology they used has simply dissipated over the past 80 years. The box is complete, but a bit stained and worn , as shown. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THOSE PHOTOS! A very nice W WII-era collector toy that will display great. Thanks, good luck and God bless!
