Authentic 1939 New York World’s Fair, Greyhound Iron Metal Diecast/tin Toy Tram For Sale

Authentic 1939 New York World’s Fair, Greyhound Iron Metal Diecast/tin Toy Tram

Welcome to our sale! Many of you know us as longtime collectors and sellers of antique and vintage Hallowe'en, Christmas, and Easter holiday memorabilia, paper ephemera, antique dolls and toys, and lovely old china and glassware. We have been given the honor of dispersing some amazing pieces from the collection of a longtime, knowledgeable toy collector.This is a magnificent toy souvenir tram train from the 1939 New York World’s Fair that is marked Greyhound, New York World’s Fair, An Arcade Toy. This two-piece iron diecast-and-tin toy set is in colors of old orange, midnight blue and ivory white – and we particularly love the original orange and blue striped awning made from tin that is atop the tram’s passenger car.This set has its original paint, and the driver – which is also original to the piece – is made from silver-colored metal. We have seen other examples for sale with the driver missing. The Greyhound dog image and Trylon and Perisphere logo from the Fair appear on both sides of the driving car or tractor, along with the words Greyhound New York World’s Fair. The circular Arcade Toy mark appears in gold on the back of the tractor car. The set measures 7 ½” long x 2 ¼” high.The tram car features twelve seats and four rubber wheels that are original. The side edges of the passenger car have missing paint, but that is the way it was made. The tin roof is in near mint condition with only a few miniscule hard-to-see scratches at the top. These tin roofs are sometimes missing from these toys. The driving car or tractor has its four original rubber wheels and a few tiny chips to the orange paint in the front and a few tiny ones to the orange paint at the top.This is an incredible piece of World’s Fair memorabilia and if you are a collector of die cast metal or tin toys, Greyhound collectibles, or World’s Fair memorabilia this scarce toy in its amazing condition just might be the perfect acquisition for you!WE LOVE OUR buyers!
