Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:21A
Road Name:Imitation Grass
Year Introduced:1951
#21A was produced from 1951 through 1956 and has two variations. Imitation Grass was not new in 1951, because it was actually first offered in 1949 and 1950 as catalog number 21 with different packaging. That version came in a clear one-half pound cellophane bag with white lettering. Starting in 1951, the Imitation Grass, as shown in the photo, was issued the new catalog number of "21A" due the change in packaging. The two variations of the #21A are both packaged in a plastic bag however; one has white lettering while the second has red lettering.
