The picture below shows views of both sides of the (2) Early Matching Cracker Jack Pop Corn Confection Pot Metal or Lead Miniature Toy Prize Cannons with Moving Wheels in this lot. These are marked with some words on the side of the barrels but we can not read them. These look like they may be Revolutionary War cannons, but we do not know for sure. The left one has original purple inking on the barrel, and the right one has blue inking. These are early Cracker Jack box prizes. The holes in the barrels go all the way back, and a hole is at the top back area. Both of these have rolling wheels.

Many of the pot metal or lead prizes were manufactured by the Tootsietoy Company of Chicago, Illinois. There were other companies, including from Japan prior to World War II. Some of these type prizes were made specifically for Cracker Jack, while others were made as novelties, bought in volume, and used as prizes by The Cracker Jack Company. Pot metal or lead prizes were some of the earliest prizes that were used in Cracker Jack boxes from the 1910s to the late 1940s. Many of these type prizes or novelties were also sold out of old Johnson Smith & Company catalog as well as some other early novelty catalogs, also used in fortune telling sets, and some were also sold and used as board game parts. Many of these can be found factory painted, inked, or with no finish at all.

Both of these for one price! These cannons each measures about 1-3/16'' x 3/4'' x 1''. The two appear to be in very good to excellent condition as pictured.
