5.5x6x3.5" tall tin litho toy w/built-in key © 1940 Superman Inc. on Superman's cape. This toy was issued w/three different colored planes, this has primarily gold body while the other varieties are red and blue. Plane is designed w/pilot figure and attached to the tail by a rod is a separate 3" tall figure of Superman.

Toy has overall scattered tiny paint nicks from general use. This includes both sides of Superman figure which has scattered tiny spots of paint wear and color rubs with some small scratches near "12" on one side of tail of plane. Overall appearance remains bright and glossy w/no serious defects. A Fine example of this scarce and classic wind-up.
