Found this in/behind the plaster wall of my 1896 home during rehab, Thought it was a dollhouse toy but was told it may be a rare Cracker Jack Prize. Thought they were only plastic or paper items so your help and advice is appreciated.

Oh, you found the coolest pot metal charm with its original celluloid insert! These types of charms were used in Cracker Jack almost a hundred years ago. They were also used in other ways, so it can't be said for certain that it came from Cracker Jack, but you have a fabulous find either way!
