|The picture shows this Early 1900's Checkers Popcorn Confection Advertising Premium Watch Fob. This is believed to have been a dealer incentive premium instead of a prize in a box. The Checkers Popcorn product was from the Shotwell Manufacturing Company. It was a very strong competitor to Cracker Jack. So much so that Cracker Jack bought the product outright in 1926. It was continued but eventually phased out. The back section of this fob is made of leather and the front is imprinted celluloid. It pictures a 5 cent box and is marked as follows:|
A SOUVENIR IN EACH PACKAGE
It measures 2-3/16" tall. It is in very good condition, but does have some cracking on the celluloid, some of which can be seen in the picture.
