Seller: spanglersbotb (1,480) 100%, Location: Silver Spring, Maryland, Ships to: US, Item: 174049378992 Antique Loaded Wooden Throwing Top Very Rare Good Condition Metal Tip #6. This is an antique wooden throwing top. It is in good condition for it's age. I would guess 1900 to 1920. These were very popular toys because they were cheap, durable and easy to use. I think this one was used for gambling. It has plugs of metal (probably lead) spaced around the circumference. This is to add weight so it will spin longer. It has a metal tip on the bottom to protect the top from wear. Some people will gamble on anything. The way this was used a player would be using another top and get someone to bet that their top would spin longer. If they took the bet out would come this top. With the extra weight, in the hands of a skilled player this would spin much longer and win. Height 4 1/4" Diameter 2 7/8" Weight 192.3 grams. A rare item. No Reserve Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. Provenance: Ownership History Not Available, Material: Wood
