Company history and description of the company Kosuge Toy Co. Ltd., Japan

Matsuzo Kosuge was a master craftsman who could stamp thin sheet steel into a variety of shapes, as well as, making one-piece car bodies without splitting the actual sheet metal. Before the war Kosuge designed models of many American cars by makers like, Cadillac, Buick, Graham-Paige, and Packard to name a few. What makes this toy so rare is that many toys such as Kosuge?s sheet metal cars were often donated for the war effort for metal. To make it even more difficult to find, many Japanese toys were destroyed due to the anti-Japanese sentiment due to the war. After the war, Kosuge went to work making toys for Marusan, C.K, and others using many of the same designs.
