Yes, it’s the real Uncle Sam. Produced by Flagg & Company and sold circa 1950s as a souvenir at the United Nations building in New York. The box has an United Nations NY sticker on the front. The original owner of this historic piece remembered going into the UN Gift Centre New York and choosing it as an eight year old in 1960.
Dressed in original bright, colourful, clean clothes that have not faded with age
Sam is around 20 cm / 8 inches tall, from his shoes to the top of his tall hat. Made of flexible vinyl resin with wire inside so he can easily bend to the will of corporate America
