Rare Antique Buddy L 1920s Pressed Steel Toy Steam Shovel On Cast Wheels For Sale

Rare Antique Buddy L 1920s Pressed Steel Toy Steam Shovel On Cast Wheels

RARE1920s - 1930s DEPRESSIONERA
PRESSED STEEL BUDDY L TOY STEAM SHOVEL
WITH CAST IRON WHEELS,
BUILT BY THE MOLINE PRESSED STEEL CO. OF EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS

This amazing toysteam shovelis a recent acquisition to our storefront. It is in antique, once played with and as-found condition. It appears this toy was once painted, but it is a vintage period repainting, as the roof is a silver color, the wheelsand base are red and there isover-brush paint,and the black body seems to have been repainted, as well. There are no decals existing. The string to pull the bucket up may be original, but we are unsure. There is a modern nut and bolt to tie the boom together, as well. It does work and draws the bucket up and the dump opens. It spins no problem, as well. Measures approx. 20" long, 8" wide, and 14" tall to the top of the boom.

It is simply amazing that antique turn of the century toys like this were actual working scale models of the original equipment, and not only were real machines, but they taught young boys and men how to actually operate the full size equipment. Not to mention that a toy like this was a definite safety hazard in case anything went wrong! This also was a quite rare toy for it's time considering it was issued right during the worst part of the US Depression, making it very expensive to purchase.
