Auction 191 - Part II
Item numbers 955 though 2537 in auction 191.
1.25" inscribed in black on green rim "Meet Me At Merkel's Toyland." See #991 for additional details. This example is second of only two found by the consignor. Back paper has small .25" tan stain on extreme edge. The primary issue is a pair of air streaks under the celluloid. These are side by side, each about 1/16" wide and 3/8" long running vertically. The bottom half of these cross his face and ear but barely show. What does show slightly is the top half of each line appearing a bit whiter than surrounding off-white bkg. above his head. Second, and very minor, are three ft. tan age dots on extreme four o'clock edge that blend w/green and are barely visible. Overall Fine, displays bright and fresh w/full color, high gloss and perfect centering. Rare. (I/J - $400 to $1000)
