A Pair of Dent Coupes Aluminum and Cast Iron

In the early 1930's, Dent Hardware Company, of Fullerton, PA, tried an experiment. They already had an extensive line of cast iron toys, and decided to introduce some aluminum examples. Using the same patterns that were used to make the cast iron examples, they produced perhaps thirty different toys in aluminum. It has been suggested that the reason for this was to reduce shipping costs, as it was becoming more and more expensive to ship the much heavier cast iron. The toys were not a success with little boys, and few were made, so they are difficult to find today. Presented here is the aluminum example, with its cast iron counterpart. Buyer pays shipping. Please check out my other items currently listed, and save on shipping.

Here are two really neat early antique toy vehicles. I'm offering tonight, a five inch aluminum coupe, with driver cast in the window, stamped steel wheels with red painted centers; and a similar light blue cast iron example.
