Please Help Identify

Postby hovermd » Sun May 07, 2017 11:36 pm

Here are a couple slush cast airplane toys that I would love to identify. I feel certain there are a number of MACers who will know...

Two are identical in design with 6 cm wingspans and large green props:



One has a cast lead propeller, wingspan of just over 5.5 cm and a tail wheel on an axle:



The last toy has two engines mounted on top of the wing, a wingspan of a bit over 6 cm and cast lead props:

Mark,

The last one is CAW or Charles A Wood. The others are questionable between CAW and possibly Barclay

Here is a good website for ID-ing stuff

Sandman Overhaul's lead was terrific.

I reached out to Mr. Bill Buttaggi, a very knowledgeable collector of slush-cast toys.

The top toy has been identified as a variant of the Kansas Toy & Novelty "No 32" airplane toy made in the 1930s. Mine is not marked "32," but instead has a star on the top of each wing.

The pair of toys are Barclay "No 52" Lindy-type airplane toys, also from the 1930s.

The Charles A. Wood (C.A.W.) ID was spot-on.

My mystery is solved - thanks to Sandman Overhaul and Mr. Buttaggi.
