The seller characterizes this wind-up mechanical as "rare," but it surfaces regularly as it is a modern creation with zero vintage value. Beware of all mechanicals being sold these days. Every one I have seen in the last three years is either a Frankensteined item or completely fake. Don't be snookered.
I'll begin populating this page with photos of reproductions, fakes and fantasy items as I see them listed on eBay, Etsy and other such sites. Hopefully, collectors will refer to this page to minimize the occasions reproductions, fakes and fantasy items are unknowingly purchased. If you see something on this page that was sold to you purporting to be a vintage item, immediately send it back for a full refund.
