Circa 1920's, this is Uncle Walt from the Gasoline Alley comic strip. He has the old style, bobble head where a thin cord runs from the top of his head. You can position his head any way you like. Many of the comic strip characters from the 1920's were made into these wonderfully detailed figurines. They were often referred to as nodders, or bobble heads, but they aren't loose like the later nodders and head bobbers that are generally associated with those terms. Impressed in the mold on his back is, "Uncle Walt, and, "Germany". As you can see in the photos, there is a tight hairline crack on his face. This is an old crack and is solid. It has not been repaired, so no glue residue. Personally, I wouldn't do anything to it. This flaw is reflected in his low price. He is just under 3&1/2 inches tall.
