I got this at a yard sale in the 70's from my next door neighbor--an old yankee in his 90's who bought it for his grandson back in the fifties. He was really fussy about his belongings and this was in great shape--just a little wear around the hat. (I now wish I bought the old board games he had--they were in perfect condition!!!) I knew it was valuable even back then but before the internet it was hard to figure exactly how much. I once saw a reference to a "rare" red one worth 30,000 dollars but I believe that with the advent of ebay everyone started searching their attics bringing down the prices on all of these things. He still works fine--I had a old clock key that I used to check it out. He walks via a pin in his foot. Anyone have any info on this particular model?
