Prototype Marx Plane based on Looping Plane- research help

Prototype Marx Plane based on Looping Plane- research help

We have a curiosity that appears to be a Marx concept toy/prototype made or kept at the Girard, PA location.  It has an inventory number, and hand painted model number…. We need your help!

The wood on the wheels appears more raw/natural than production.

The aft wheel, lever, and action are unique.

No label is kept/affixed on the top wing.

Write to us at toys@antiquetoys.com if you have a catalog to share to conformist product number.  Were these numbers used for sales, concepts, prototypes, or is that the production number.

Our example has a rear wheel zig-zag steering pattern that is unique.  We’ve also see this style of toy produced in 1940.  Ours is a 1938 date…. help us with research data please!
