Theme: Speed Boat with Driver (Mercury 25)
Year: 1950's (??) Brand:

SAN Made in Japan

**No Reserve** Vintage MERCURY SPEED BOAT # 25 with Driver (head) SAN Japan Tin Litho Wind-Up Friction OLD Toy Vehicle. Measures approx 6" long by just over 3" widest and almost 3" high from bottom of propeller or rudder (unsure of proper terminology) to top of man's head. Overall very good UNCLEANED original vintage condition with some minor wear from play/use, as clearly shown in the 12 photos from all angles. The friction motor seems to work fine when key is wound (propeller or rudder spins/turns when wound, but I didn't test it in water), and the paint has nice shine and very good overall appearance. There are some minor scratches, dings, etc. No noticeable tarnish, NO rust, and everything seems to be there (I'm NOT an expert on vintage toys). Marked on top rear "SAN (inside circle logo) Made In Japan". Also note the "29" (cents) ink stamp on bottom, as shown in multiple pics (probably the original dime store or drug store retail price mark from back in the 1950's). PLEASE ENLARGE, ZOOM AND CLOSELY EXAMINE ALL 12 PHOTOS OF ACTUAL ITEM FROM ALL ANGLES FOR BEST VISUAL DESCRIPTION, taken both with and without flash ~ You will receive exactly what's pictured. Any color variation, distortion, blurs, shadows or other spots not mentioned are from camera flash glare. From toy collector's estate in Springfield, MO. We will be listing more toys from same estate, and we're always happy to COMBINE ACTUAL SHIPPING when possible.
