This toy has been tested and works well. Battery compartment is mint as are the connections. It is listed on page 185. It is a 1950's era toy made by the M-T Co.
This would make an excellent addition to any toy collection. You would have a hard time trying to find a nicer one. I have many other 1950's & 1960's, mint condition & mint in box, battery operated & mechanical wind-up toys listed. Take a look, you may find an old memory from the past.
