Lot 161 has more information added to description. Lot 6 has an additional photo of the back.

1893 World's Columbian Exposition
Toy, "The Wonder of", "1892", "How Columbus Discovered America". Open the box and inside are 4 wooden blocks, each with a number in a purple circle attached to the block. The back of the block has a step cut in so that it fits properly into the bottom that also has a lip with nails between where each block fits in. The blocks are numbered '1', '4', '9' & '2'. I am not exactly sure how this would be played, but it appears that it was designed for a young child to get the blocks into the correct order to identify the year of the discovery of America. Rare. Size: 6 1/4" wide by 1 3/4" deep by 3/4" tall. Condition: Fine. The box has corner separations on all the aprons on the top and wear to the edges. The blocks are Extremely Fine.

Minimum Bid: $ 35

Estimate: $ 75 - $ 125
