Vintage¬†1950’s Nomura 6544 Ambulance made from recycled tin can. Printed detail is great with a male driving and a female nurse riding as passenger. Above back bumper it has a T over an N in a circle as a mark over “Made in Japan” which stands for Nomura.¬† After enjoying a long run of non-stop growth from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s, the Japanese tin toy industry found the 1980s a difficult environment in which to survive. Changing tastes, lower-priced competition from other countries, and increasingly aggressive toy safety regulations all led to a massive downturn in the demand for tin toys. The majority of the companies who just a few years earlier were staple items found in the toy departments of nearly every popular price retailer across the globe were out of business by the end of the decade.
