A special Hummingbird - Nature in Motion - Executive - Hardwood (Bocote, from Mexico and Central/South America) vintage yo-yo in original box from about 1986. Made of rock maple by the Country Wood Shop Ltd. of Delevan, NY and run by Brad Countryman. Country Wood Shop was the forerunner to Hummingbird Toy Company started in 1988. Box included a velour carrying pouch, one extra string, and the illustrated "Nature in Motion" yo-yo trick book. Some of these Executive models made from exotic woods that were stamped in gold foil with the hummingbird image and "hummingbird limited" in text. These stamped versions, unfortunately, spoiled the appearance of the beautiful wood that it was showcasing.
