We believe based on his grey plug in he is from the 1980s. Has Tri State Day Industries label on base. This Santa doesnt come up very often and in overall such great shape. Moves his head side to side and right arm up and down. His issues are: wear to base fabric and boots as shown, he may need to have his wood dowels in legs replaced and made longer, he has begun to lean and a previous owner added a board to level him up, jacket slightly coming apart a back of neck, needs a good cleaning and fluffing up and usual wear to overall body and clothing.
I have not see another one like this for sale. To see him in action.
