A rare Keystone “World’s Greatest Circus” ride-on truck was made even rarer by the fact that its condition showed limited use and proper care from its previous owner(s). Decorated with delicate paper lithography inside and out, it was highly susceptible to damage. However, not only did this example retain a lion’s share of its paper, it also retained all six of its interior cages, increasing its play value and desirability. As such, Julia’s set a new World Auction Record with this piece when it sold for $17,250 against an estimate of $4,000-7,000.
