Hi CW Gang:
Got this metal globe at a garage sale for .50 cents back in 2008. On the metal it says made by ** Chad Valley England ** and has a notation for the appointment for Her Majesty the Queen (HMQ). Gee when you watch the Antiques Roadshow and see what some of the toys go for....this could be a little sleeper of a collectible here.
I mean put it all together: Toy, warranted, metal (litho), from Wool-Worths, and dated to 1939...I think my .50 cents may have been a good investment ;)
I was told that pre 1950s globes are an coming collectible! Look at the Globe at Europe and see IF Germany is split in 2. If it's one then it's pre 1945..... Or post 1990s. Also look at Africa...On MINE the Belgians still had power over The Belgian Congo, but only from 1908 till 1960. The Belgian Congo was ONLY between 1949 and 1960 -- 11 year window for dating these. Any other info welcomed !!!

Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!
