You might recall some time ago I posted a toy 1870 Ek2---
Here is a bit of a follow up on these.
They were made by the Lowell Toy Mfg corp of New York.
They could be pruchased from retailers or came as premiums
in food items, ect. ( I believe "Grape Nuts" cereal offered them)
There was an entire set of the worlds famous medals to be collected.
Here is my new arrival. A 1870 Ek2, still on it's card, unopened
and still with the original clear wrapper. (the plastic wrapper does not show
to well in the pictures)
