This is an original pressed metal lithographed toy airplane of Admiral Richard Byrd's Spirit of America from the 1920s. we believe it to be made by Keystone, but it has no maker's mark.

We have owned this toy since 1968.

There is a clicker/cricket activated by the sprocket on the wheel axle. A drive belt of some type linked the wheels to the propeller shaft, so that it would spin as the toy was pulled across the floor.

We guarantee this toy airplane to be Original and Genuine, and the photos of it in this posting to be unretouched. Full resolution photos available on request- please just ask and we will send them to your direct email.

Condition is exactly as shown.

Price reflects condition, rarity, and historical significance.

We have ESTIMATED shipping charges via UPS Ground, plus mandatory insurance (TBD by final sale price) and packing materials (20x15x9) inch corrugated cardboard box and peanuts/wrap) at cost. There is no handling charge. We prefer to ship via FedEx Ground as it is less expensive and just as reliable as UPS, but will ship per buyer's instructions. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE PAYMENT until you have received a final invoice with ACTUALIZED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR YOUR LOCATION.

We will be posting other antique toys of this period, ranging from the affordable to the extremely rare. Please feel free to e-mail if you are a collector.
