Flea market find

Post by edteach » Mon Nov 26, 2018 12:40 pm

I bought this jar of prizes at a flea market for 8 bucks. The Tang lid is cool Jar is just an old mayo jar. 3x CJ viewers not marked cj. Rest are a set of dolly brush, comb and mirror very small so I know its old. A blow rollup, rings and trolls. A gun with charm ring, Kellogg's corn flakes box and Elgin Watch. A couple of stand up bobby and dog biting leg of guy what ever they are from. Any help identifying the as to time they were made/sold by decade. I am thinking 70s

The capsules these are in tell that they were from a gumball machine. Based on the number of trolls in the lot, I would guess 1960's vintage.

edteach: Nice assortment of coin-op items. Enjoy.

Cyndy: I agree with your assessment (bulk vending toys from the 1960's). I think the Tang jar lid even goes with the era. :)clap Good call.

Have fun!
