An early production model of the popular "talking" Joe figurine, this is the Navy version; the figure has brown hair and the slightly smaller 'hard' head as well as the larger version hands and feet; the left shoulder piece has multiple cracks at the peg-hole and does not hold the forearm piece very tightly; with usual knee cracks and a tiny paint rub on one eyebrow, hair paint nearly perfect; the uniform and boots appear to be from the regular production run but the shirt has the words "NBE Sample / To Men / 8-3-67" penned in black ballpoint ink on the back; otherwise the boots and the clothing are in good condition; "talking" feature still in working condition; back of figurine is stamped "GI Joe / Copyright 1964 / By Hasbro / Patent Pending / Made in USA."
