Hi Danelle- Your Anti-Aircraft Gun truck, 4" long, two men, was made by the American firm
of Barclay. The Barclay number is No. 48. It is pictured and listed in the Barclay section, page 108, of Richard O'Brien's TOY SOLDIERS (1997, ISBN: 0-89689-118-6). The Barclay firm started in 1924 in New York City, and it was by the late 1930's the largest producer of toy soldiers in the USA. Your gun truck was produced during those years. Types of wheels (white rubber, wood hub with white rubber tire, etc.) varied with availability. Congratulations on finding this truck with the rear soldier's head intact; that's special!
