    This is an unusual African American Man Riding a Velocipede Charm.  Measuring 0.875" (22mm) high by 0.625" (16mm) wide by 0.25" (6mm) deep, the metal charm shows a lanky African American man pedaling an antique bicycle.  His hat and clothing have been painted red, white and blue, including a large white star on the back of his coat, and his skin and hands have been painted chocolate brown.  His molded facial features have a folk art look to them with large round eyes, triangular nose and tiny slightly U-ed mouth.  The bicycle with its large and small wheels, straight handlebars and large light has been left in the natural metal, which looks like cast iron.  Maker and age are unknown.  No similar charm could be found online.  This African American Man Riding a Velocipede Charm is in very good condition with no damage or wear.
