Description (Brief)
This wooden yo-yo was made by the Duncan Toys Company during the 1950s. It is green with a red stripe. The decal reads “Duncan Genuine Yo-Yo Tournament Top.” This model is known to collectors as a “broken Y pedestal 77.” It is called this for the following reasons; there is a line halfway down in the “y"'s” of the word “yo-yo;” the logo, Mr. Yo-Yo is presented atop a small pedestal; and the decal is marked “77” (chipped off in this example).
