Arnold Submarine Tin Toy Box Post 1945

Flag_of_GermanyThis is the box used to market the Arnold clockwork tin toy submarine similar to the one pictured above. The only difference between this toy and the 1938 model is that this one has a white star on the conning tower in place of the swastika on the earlier toy. This carton is in overall good condition with some cardboard loss on one of the ends.
