Over all, this yo-yo is is in fair condition. It has"JL 7" craved into the back, which was popular to do around the time this yo-yo came out. . Gold seal is in fair condition, but readable.

*Duncan had a famous lawsuit with Royal Yo-Yos over the use of the word Yo-Yo. Duncan contended that Yo-Yo was their trademarked name for the generic toy called a Return Top. Royal argued that Yo-Yo was the name of the toy and that Duncan couldn't trademark it. Royal Prevailed in the early 60s and after that time Duncan stopped using the trademark registration mark (®)
on the word Yo-Yo. Many Duncan Yo-Yos before that time will have the registration mark below the dash in Yo-Yo. This is helpful in dating vintage Duncan Yo-Yos and identifying genuine and fake vintage yo-yos.

*All of YoYoSam's Vintage Yo-Yos have been checked by a knowledgeable yo-yo collector for accuracy and authenticity. They are guaranteed to be genuine. Beware of fakes and inaccurate descriptions.

*Thanks to Lucky Meisenheimer for providing information on this yo-yo and many others in his book, Lucky's Guide to 20th Century Yo-Yos. The most comprehensive Yo-Yo collectors book ever written.
