Duncan Tournament Yo-Yo

Description (Brief)
This green wooden "Duncan Tournament" yo-yo was made by the Duncan Toys Company from about 1960-1965. It is known as a “crossed flags” model, because of its gold leaf stamped seal featuring two crossed flags. The yo-yo is an example from the last wooden "Duncan Tournament" line produced before Duncan went bankrupt in 1965. .
