Title Tin Duck

Description Tin duck toy has 3 wheels and a weight under its body. Duck has appendage on front that looks like it connected to something else. Duck was originally painted in a variety of colors (green, red, yellow, etc.) but now paint is heavily chipped. Not all the wheels still turn and they wobble. Weight could possibly be part of the toys functionality, like a wind-up toy.
