personality plus teddyboy was found under the floorboards of an old
pioneer house here on the West Oz goldfields along with his partner
in crime ,a Joy Toys teddy.
Hamilton is an Alpha Farnell from 1928-1935 era and apparently was under
the floorboards for at least 65 years and according to the elderly couple
who have dwelt in the house for 65 years , these two teddies were under
the house for at least that long.
In 1996, Hamilton was awarded the 3rd place medal in the most personable
vintage bear section of the Premier Bear Affair in Sydney, Australia.
