I'll be listing a number of my antique tin toys over coming weeks, including a few of my early motorcycles... RARE EARLY MARX TOYS POLICE MOTORCYCLE. From around early 1930's. 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm.
WORKING CLOCKWORK / WIND UP MECHANISM. ORIGINAL ARMS, HEADLIGHT AND HANDLE BARS.
GREAT TIN LITHO DESIGN, PERIOD MOTORCYCLE & UNIFORMED OFFICER.... BIG TINPLATE BALLOON SPOKE WHEELS.
With a careful wind up of the integral key head (winds fine, key head is a little loose on shaft).... Engage the start lever and the motorcycle will spin rear wheel and ride about. Now getting on for 90 years old, the bike has survived with a pleasing natural aged appearance. Original litho finish still looks nice, with vibrant colour...... Showing with surface litho wear, play/age marking, scuffs, scratch, loss, chips, oxide spots etc..Baseplate retains all securing tabs, showing just little oxide marking in spots. Great old piece, without repaint or touch up. (please see images for actual condition). REAL PERIOD MOTORCYCLE TIN TOY..... NOT MODERN OR A REPRODUCTION. I've added all the images i can, in differing light to hopefully show the honest/accurate condition...
