Charben's Mechanical Farm Tractor Near Mint/Boxed (Incredibly rare blue version March 1951)

As of 1st March 1951 to May 1952 there was a ban on using zinc, brass and copper in toy production, due to the Korean war.  In March 1951, Charben's advertised a clockwork tractor and was only available "while supplies last".  Only a small number of these were produced before the metal ban, which makes the clockwork tractor's incredibly rare indeed.  


This incredibly Charben's tractor comes in the very rare blue & silver with with green wheel centres. Mechanical motor seems to be operational but due to the fragile nature of the key & model I won't wind it up. Brown driver, air cleaner present, trailer hitch intact, steering wheel attached. Shows signs of light fatigue but to be expected with this model.


The green box is in decent order with no repairs & over labelled is bright with clear script. Some signs of deterioration to the base but it's still intact & present.
