Fresh from Jolly Ol' England, just came in the mail today. Appears to be fairly early, as far as I know. Fairly true and accurate to the English tanks of WWI, I can only guess it was made shortly after the conflict but perhaps as late as the early 30s. Reminds me of the "Treat 'Em Rough" tank toys and banks that come up from time to time.

At 4 1/2" long, it probably qualifies more as a penny toy. If less is more, then this thing has the most ;)

    This is superb. I hear and see the early cartoons of the 30's with the demonic and dark scenes of war.

    Thanks so much! I'm sorry I didn't get back to such a great comment! I see what you mean though, this is very much like a caricature.
