    I don't think it's Buddy L, but if it were it would be stamped on the bottom. If it were cast iron, I'd say it looks a lot like Arcade, but they didn't make tin toys. It could be Structo, Marx, or any number of makers from the '20s-'30s. If there isn't a maker stamped anywhere then the only way to find anything out will be dimensions and more pictures, specifically the underside of the truck, axel assembly, etc.

    Probably made by a company like Schieble or Dayton, the latter of which had a lot of wacky verity in models. Not Marx, Buddy L, Structo, or any of the big names as far as I know, they all had distinctly different styles during the 20's when this was likely made. Then again, there were a lot of small manufacturers that we don't really know about.
