Yankee Clippers included the words “Yankee Clipper” on the seat, coupled with a picture of an aeroplane.

Flexible Flyers

S L Allen Co. first produced Flexible Flyer models in 1889, introducing the inexpensive range of Yankee Clipper sleds in the early 1960s.

The company closed its doors in the early 1970s.

How much are Yankee Clipper sleds worth?
