    Simple Cast Iron Toy Cannon

    It's small but in some ways, more efficient than the big expensive kinds.
    Made of two halves riveted together with a firing unit/breach and a strong spring.
    All you do is nail it in place and then pull back the breech firing unit, put some caps in it and let loose -
    3 inch barrel, must have cost pennies when new, no idea of the age.Kind of looks like a mock Coastal thing.

    1920s, has a simple bent metal piece that holds down the breech until it's pulled away with a string.
    I can make one up easily enough.
