This is the Duncan "Little G" Tournament Yo-Yo.

One piece wooden Yo-Yo with Gold Leaf stamp,Red paint and a silverstripe.
This Yoyo is unique. Many collectors like yo-yos that have names or pictures carved into them. This one has the name Joe carved into the back. It has been well used and looks as if it did its share of walk the dog on concrete or pavement, as evidenced by the complete paint loss on the outer edges. There are chips and paint loss in various spots. The gold leaf stamp is worn and very light in places.

Over all, this yo-yo is beat to hell and carved up by someone named Joe. But it has a ton of character and and no doubt and interesting history.

*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.
