The "Star" return top was a lesser known wooden, three piece yo-yo, with red and black halves, and a black ink stamp for the seal. These yo-yos were sold loose without packaging. The string was "pegged" (also sometimes known as "fixed string") between the yo-yo axle and one of the halves. Made in USA. The black ink stamp on the red halve consisted of the text "Return Top" and "Made in USA", and a star symbol, all within a circle. The "Star" text is outside the circle.

The size of the halves on this model are very well matched (see the Profile picture)--which is often not the case on lesser known brands. The grade 9 condition is due to the slightly blurred/incomplete middle portion ("Made in USA") of the stamp.
