|The picture below shows a larger view of this 1945 Cracker Jack Pop Corn Confection Private Detective Embossed Tin Novelty Toy Prize Badge. The badge is not dated but it was made in 1945 and 1946 by C. Carey Cloud / Cloudcrest in Chicago, Illinois for The Cracker Jack Company. The Cracker Jack ID number for this novelty prize was Z-1034. I am calling it a badge, but it was not made with any pin on the back. You could call it a token or a coin as well. Other coins like “Queer Quarter”, “Daffy Dollar”, a good luck token, and more were made as Cracker Jack prizes at the same time. Because of the metal shortages from World War II, These were cleverly manufactured from the round scrap tin metal holes from Ball or Mason canning jar lids. The token or badge measures about 1-7/18'' wide. It appears to be in excellent condition as pictured.|
