If you want to sell it list in the for sale section with a price. Saying "it will be for sale soon" sounds like you are fishing for a buyer. V/r Shawn

I could see that now. I’ll remove that part. But def not fishing on this one LOL. I’m just trying to find out what company produced these and anything else I can learn about it before listing it. Is there a better section for this that’s just for information?

Nope you're in the right section. @ridingtoy may be able to help you with this one. The step plates are probably the 'tell' on this one. I'm thinking very late '30s-early '40s. V/r Shawn

My guess late 30’s metal seat ( spring plate with front single hanger )
Colson
Fender , truss , grips, and steps pointing me in that direction
$100- 150 price range.
cool brick red pedals.
condition / paint - fair to good.
hope this helps.
only a opinion
GL- nice trike

Yes, as Shawn and Mark mentioned, it was also the round rear step plates that tell me Colson and definitely looks later 1930s to me, too. Colson used both round and oval step plates on different models/different years. The 1934 Mickey Mouse trike is an example of their oval step use. The Lady liberty badge is no doubt some store brand that Colson sold their products through.

That's a beautiful example of the Mickey Mouse tricycle. The art deco looking head badge and more streamlned seat top put this one in the 1934-35 range. The 1933-34 models had a standard looking long spring saddle and different head badge design - photo examples are in this CABE topic - https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/truly-rare-1934-colson-mickey-mouse-tricycle.19934/

If I could go back in time, purchase only one tricycle, and bring it back with me, this would be the one!
