I don't know the age of the steam roller,but I've had it for 50 years.The roller was used when it was given to me at 7 years old.
The red tractor was an Xmas gift in about 1961.
These vehicles have alot of miles on them.

    It appears that your steamroller was made by Hubley. I would say that it is of pre-war vintage since later versions were made in the 1950's without the cutouts in the wheels.

    Thanks Fourpeep,I'm suprised that it's pre-war.

    Ron, here is a link to a version described as being from the 1950's which does not have the wheels punched out.

    I imagine the steamroller would be quite rare and valuable today.

    They are both Hubley items. The Roller would be a 1950 or 51 having the cut out spoke wheels. They were made from 1952 to 1956 with solid type spoke wheels.

    Great you still have them.

    The Tractor was made from 1957 to around 1965.
