Name Holgate #669 "'155 M. M.' Tank", blue star variation, with box





Catalog ID HCM5370
Description Lacking pull-string and ball, but complete with four blue soldiers. Box is off-white, with blue printing. Rear left corner is torn, and repaired with masking tape. Wooden axles. This is the variation with the blue star on the top (instead of the blue circle with unpainted star). There is a prominent wood-knot on the rear of the tank, which may indicate a war-time use of lower-quality lumber, or possibly factory seconds (see: Holgate #666 "The Army Six by Six", in box).
