Lehmann “Pilotto” plane

pilotto-for-site-002

An ultra-rare toy, this little plane was known as EPL 768.  Made from 1929-41, this was the first Lehmann toy with friction drive.  It has a spinning prop and roulette wheel on top.  Reportedly only 1,200 were made.  Notice the unusual bearded man logo.  It appears only on this toy and on EPL 680 “Na-ob.”
