It has been gone over by a professional tin toy doctor so everything is in working order. All things are original to this fine toy except the string/rope from Santa to the reindeer.Of course, over the 90 years it has been in existence, they have rotted away. A quality replacement is shown. Just take a look at the fine lithography on this toy.
Very little scratches with some stains to the front green area of the sleigh. The bottom is almost scratch free with no rust apparent.
