Antique Keystone Steam Shovel Ride’Em Toy

Product #T154C

This is an all original Keystone Ride’Em steam shovel tin play toy. Notice that there is still the original paper stickers on the toy that read, ‘Keystone Ride’Em Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Steam Shovel Pat. No. 1,566,030 Oil Axles Frequently – Keystone Mfg. Co. Boston, Mass. U.S.A.’ There is two other labels and one has a nice graphic design of a little boy demonstrating how to use the lever, ‘Arm extends by continuing to turn crank’. Notice the wooden handles for steering the toy when ride’em. The original condition of this toy is very good. The toy measures 11″ high and the 28″ long when extended out. The wheel base of this toy is 10″ x 7″. The only imperfection to note on this toy is on the back and lower portion of the steam pipe there is missing a small tin cover that would have covered the open hole. What a fun toy this piece would have provided endless hours of fun.
