You may recall these Marx president figures from the 1960's. There are 35 figures in all, up until President Johnson. Each figure is 2 2/4" tall and is hand painted. On the front of the base is the presidents name, and on the rear of the base is the years in office as well as his number as president, for example, Abraham Lincoln # 16. In addition to buying the presidents as a set, I remember these being given out as a premium at Jewel Food stores in the Chicago area, in which a different figure would be given out every week. If anyone remembers this please let me know. The base and columns are made of styrofoam.
