Antique 1932 Marx Smitty Lithographed Tin Comic Character w/o Scooter Toy Figure
I am pleased to offer this Very Rare Antique 1932 Marx Smitty Lithographed Tin Comic Character!
This Smitty was a piece of the “Smitty Scooter” toy, which has a wind up scooter base that the figure could slide on/off of. unfortunately this Smitty’s scooter was lost to time.
The figure is from the “Smitty” comic strip created in 1922 by Walter Berndt. He is dressed in an orange/yellow sweater, short black pants, long socks, and shoes. He also wears a cap and bow tie.
The toy first appeared in the 1932 Sears Fall/Winter catalog, and was grouped with 4 other toys that all together sold for a whopping $1!
Measures approx. 6-3/8″ Tall x 4-1/4″ Long
