This small tin insect is a vintage penny toy that was made in Germany. It looks like a colorful variety of an oriental beetle with stripes and small dots on the large wings. The legs are one piece hooked to the bottom side of the body. It also has little tin wheels on the bottom but for some reason it doesn’t seem to roll across the floor like it probably should. It is marked Made in Germany on the back inner edge of one wing.
It measures about 3” in overall length. It is in nice condition with minimal wear other than the already stated fact that it doesn’t roll. There is light surface rust to the under side of the body.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
