Vintage Toys - 1940s Tin Army Plane

Today we found this super great toy airplane! It's from the early 1940s (or thereabouts) and was made by Marx Toys, one of the most popular toy manufacturers at the time. Fun fact : their brands produced the Rock em Sock em Robots and the Big Wheel tricycle!

Anyway, it's got quite a bit of rust happening, but I kind of prefer that to a pristine version. You can really see the 70 or so years on that toy. Obviously, it's way past play time, but I think it would make a great piece of decor. Maybe on a bedside table or perched atop a stack of vintage books?

So great.
