Hubley Arcade Cast Iron Motorcycle Cop With Side Car

Here is a very old, original paint, cast iron Hubley or Arcade Motorcycle Policeman with side car.  The underside of the side car is stamped “3.”  This piece is all cast iron including the spoked wheels.  Also included is a nickel steel passenger that fits into the side car’s seat.  I’m not sure if he’s original but I’ll include him anyway.  The toy measures 5” long by 2 3/8” wide and sits 3 ¼” tall.  This toy should clean up nicely!

Recognize Authentic Cast Iron Items from Reproduction

You can recognize authentic cast iron items from reproduction.  I have got some cast iron items, like cast iron cows, cast iron banks, etc. If you have no idea how to identify the real one, you can identify by checking that if the screws holding the item jointly are that of Phillips? They are reproductions or fake or new in other words. So do remember that a classic or vintage or antique cast iron are made with plane head screws.
