Happy SUNday! – another addition to the trove of Yashica collectibles

As received from a collector in Singapore. He’ll get a bit of cleaning soon although he’s not that grungy now.

This was a dealer display model – about 8 inches tall. The green shoe version was not as common as the red shoe variety. Not sure why some were made with green shoes… preferred dealer? The green shoe guys also had a slightly different eyelash style, little to no red on the cheeks, and a star painted on the left eye vice a white dot.
Made in Japan by Modern Plastics in 1962

My original dealer display model with the more common red shoes. The Yashica sticker on his hat alternates from ‘YASHICA’ and ヤシア (Yashica in katakana) to nothing.
The 4-inch version is shown here with ‘YASHICA’ in katakana characters.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! – Chris
