Description

*********DAVY CROCKETT”KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER”REMEMBER THAT TUNE FROM MY YOUTH (NOW IT’S STUCK IN MY HEAD).  HERE’S A NEAT OLD TOY, NOT SURE IF IT WAS A CEREAL PREMIUM OR JUST AN ITEM YOU BOUGHT IN THE STORE.  PLASTIC HOUSING MEASURES 3″ X 13/16″ X 1/4″.  REMOVED THE OLD BATTERY AND PUT IN A FRESH ONE (NO DAMAGE INSIDE), PUSHED THE BUTTON, AND IT WORKS (SEE PHOTO).  YES, IT’S BEEN PLAYED WITH BUT IS STILL IN GREAT CONDITION CONSIDERING A YOUGSTER WOULD HAVE HAD THIS.  I NOTE A SMALL PIECE OF STRING IN A SLOT IN THE BOTTOM AND ASSUME IT MAY HAVE HAVE A STRING “LANYARD” ON IT ORIGINALLY.  MANUFACTURED BY FLIPPO IN NEW YORK CITY, U.S.A.  BE SURE TO LOOK OVER ALL THE PHOTOS.PLEASE NOTE :
