Name Holgate #610 "Circus Wagon", type I

Catalog ID HCM4311
Year circa 1938
Description Early Circus Wagon, with simple elephant theme and thin, contoured red wheels with Thick steel hubs. Yellow, with three interconnected blue elephants on each side. About 60% of the Type 4b (dt4b) decal on the back. Tri-colored pull string with blue ball, a slightly different shade than the blue peg. All six pegs present. Some wear, especially to wheels.

This was produced as early as 1936, but I expect it is 1938 based on the decal.
