Barnacle Bill Rowboat Tin and Wood Wind up Works Near Mint. Made by Emmert-Hammes USA. Here is an unusual toy rarely seen. Barnacle Bill in his rowboat. Articulated tin and wood arms. Tin boat, oars and Bill himself. The toy is from the 30's I believe and is 9.5 inches long. The unusual part of this wind up is that it is driven by a rubber band. I don't think I have the proper rubber band to drive the toy but, he does work when wound tight. A stronger type band will do the trick since he does work well when I turn the drive ring on the back. The toy is near mint. Very light age wear. This same exact toy just sold at Marz auctions on 1/20/24 for $375 then you add the 20% Buyer's Premium/tax and shipping the final price is around $500. Mine is much cheaper. Scarce toy. Check out my vintage toy collection and advertising. Please ask any questions that you may have. Thank you, Dave ......No Tax charged.
