(2 1/4 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original antique German made mechanical Valentine card from the 1920s. It shows a little girl waving an American flag, swing her arm back and forth and her eyes move from side to side. If you pull the elbow out with too much enthusiasm then her eyeballs come out of her ear to the left (see third image). "Dear Valentine" reads the heart at her feet. A "kick-stand" at the back allows her to stand up for display.
The card is used and is in GOOD condition, wear at the edges, a few small creases and stains, bumped top of flag, names written on the back.
