This lot of four owl tin clickers by US Metal Toy didn't last long. Although the clickers are common, getting four of them for less than $10 each is a true bargain. The purchased used the ill-bestowed BIN wisely.
I enjoy seeing things in original packaging as it provides data on what, when and how items were originally offered to the public. Tin litho noisemakers typically had plastic tips beginning in the 1950s and always did into the 1960s. This header card used by U.S. Metal Toy has a zip code, meaning that it was used after July of 1963. The rather banal imagery used on the header card was typical of that time, although the firm didn't alter the actual tin lithography of the horns for decades. This is a great packaged set that doesn't surface often.
05/31 Update: This package ended up bringing $148.49.
I haven't seen the shaker noisemaker with the central cat figure often in 26 years of collecting, so the discerning buyer got a tremendous bargain acquiring this lot for a mere $100.99. (I wish I had been paying closer attention!)
