EXTREMELY RARE AND HARD TO FIND

1950 CHILD'S DISNEY / DISNEYLAND / DISNEY LAND FILM PROJECTOR

Made by Mavco

~Includes Donald Duck Cartoon Strip~

Offered in today's auction is something that I found at a local estate sale. It's a toy film projector with its original box. It's made by Mavco (I think they made the animatronics at Disneyland). It is a fully functioning item, I plugged it in and it worked. See photos of this item on, and also the photo of the cartoon (sorry, I didn't focus the cartoon). It's made of a brown plastic, and has an electric cord that runs through some kind of transformer. The graphics (sticker) on the front of the projector shows some minor wear, but considering it is 60 years old, I think it's in pretty nice condition. The cord has some tape on it, but I didn't take it off, so don't know the condition of the cord at that point. However, I did plug it in and it worked. This was made in 1950 by Mavco, and from what I can find out in my internet research, it is quite rare. Special film strips fit through it . . . each strip has four cells per column/row. This auction includes on file strip - it's Donald Duck.
Thanks for looking at my auction.

Payment is due immediately with "Buy it Now". For auction items, payment is requested within 3 days of auction close. Items usually ship within 24 hours of cleared payment. I do my best to accurately describe and picture items, but am not an expert. Shipping charges are automatically calculated using PayPal's calculator, I add only $0.50 for new packing materials.

The post office continues to raise their rates, so if shipping seems high to you, it's because that's what the post office charges. Also, eBay takes 9% of all postage charges, and charges all sellers a "final value fee/commission" of 9 - 12%. In addition, PayPal charges sellers for use of their service, which is required by eBay. Please take all of that into consideration when you purchase an item, and more importantly, when you leave feedback as it relates to postage charges. What you pay isn't what the seller receives. Please ask questions before bidding. Preferred payment is PayPal as required by eBay. Pennsylvania residents must pay 6% sales tax on all items except clothing. If you live in Pennsylvania, please wait for me to send you a correct invoice.
