    Re: How old?

    It looks like Manoil because of the green base and leggings...Manoil Co., Waverly, New York, started producing toys in the early 1930's. There should be a number on the base or back of him.

    I agree, it looks like a Manoil Soldier...but also looks like one that was a Guidon Bearer (one who carries the company flag). I was one in Bootcamp and our hand would be up that high holding the flag pole, even though the majority of the time, my hand was more chest level in the standing position. Nice find!!!!
