and I'll bring my new Tonka Toy that I bought from my neighbor.
 

 

 
So, Matt,  what do I have?  I don't know much about the old steel Tonkas.

My No.3920 Mighty Tonka Loader is of the same vintage, '68 through '71.  You can date them by the style of the tires, rubber air filters and smoke stack.  Aside from missing said stack you did well for 15-bucks.  Clean it up with WD-40 and he'll shine as nearly new!  I'd guess the value to be from $50 to $75 if sold on-line.
