|The picture shows both sides of this Early 1900's Checkers Popcorn Confection Advertising Premium Keychain. 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 side of this keychain has a design and the front has a recessed logo and lettering. It is marked as follows:
PAT. DEC 1, 1903
Counting the chain it measures 4-1/8" long. It is in very good condition as pictured.
