Extremely Rare, Original, Antique 1920's Distler Times Square Tin Litho Windup Traffic Toy in the Original Box. Made in Germany. This is the only known example of this toy to exist in the entire world! This has been confirmed by Juergen Cieslik the well known German toy expert and author of "Lehmann Toys","Steiff Button in Ear","Tin Toys:Trains & Cars"etc. He states that he has never seen this toy in over 40 years of collecting. This toy is featured in his new book ""Encyclopedia of German tin-toy-Industry". It's extremely rare, original, complete and in excellent condition. It works great and when wound, the trolley cars travel in a circle passing through the center Times Square subway station and through two buildings on each end. One that houses the windup motor. Features all tin construction with detailed colorful lithography that includes outstanding period advertising on the two buildings. Measures 29.5" long. The extremely rare box is the only known example to exist and is the only way to identify the maker of this toy since there are no logos printed on the toy itself. It is original, complete and in excellent condition. The bottom and lid have tape repairs made from the inside. The paper label features an outstanding detailed illustration of the toy in a busy street scene and displays wonderfully with the toy. This will make a fantastic one of a kind addition on to your collection.
