MARX OFFICER 666 TIN WIND UP TOY
Click To Enlarge

We are pleased to offer for your consideration a Louis Marx 1931 OFFICER 666 large tin walker.  This early tin wind up walker is one of the rarest in the series of large “walkers” that Marx manufactured.  Officer 666 is in nice condition with only a small amount of scattered paint loss (please see photos).  Most of the loss is concentrated around the typical contact points i.e. where the arms contact the body and behind and just below the night stick on his pants.  Both of his arms have an old repair re-attaching them so they will hang  correctly.  The top of each arm has been darkened in a V shape, apparently to hide the discoloration from the heat caused by the repair (see photos #4 & #5).  The actual solder repair is visible only from under the arms if you lift them up; it is not visible when the toy is upright (only the darkening is visible).  Please see the last two photos which show the solder repairs.  The toy works well (please see the video above for a demonstration).  When wound the Officer rocks from side to side causing him to "walk" and also the top half of his face will rise to reveal a big toothy smile and then drop back down for a more serious look. We believe the toy to be all original with the exception of the repair to the arms and darkening V pattern.  He is marked on the back of his coat, at the bottom “LOUIS MARX & Co. NEW YORK U.S.A.”  The toy measures approximately 11 inches in height and 4 ½ inches in width.  This early tin litho OFFICER 666 wind up toy is a hard to find Marx Walker so if you don’t have one in your collection this is your opportunity to purchase one at a great price!  This nice toy might also make a great gift for that special Police Officer in your family! PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES AS WELL AS VIEW THE VIDEO FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS TOY.
