Just found this 'lil guy.
It has no "1934/1984" dates like the anniversary re-issue, and it appears old, but who knows? I doubt it's pre-1937, but I like it.

Pretty sure that whoever owned this before you just scratched off the dates.
BUT still its a nice find with or without them!

You can actually see a little bit of the date still on there (almost looks like a smudge).
I have a saved search on eBay to notify me if anything related to Hinky Dinks is posted, and aside from pictures of the famous Chicagoan, I have to see anything appear. Really Hinky Dinks stuff is very rare and extremely collectable, which is another way of saying fricken' expensive.
