This vintage toy gun is an old No. 504 Spud Gun made by the E.J. Cossman Co. of Hollywood California. The ammunition for this was a plug of potato. The hollow tip of the gun was jammed into a hard potato to pry out a small pellet. When the trigger was squeezed a small amount of pressure would push the potato projectile out, not far and not fast but apparently fun was had by playing with it. The gun is made of aluminum or other non magnetic white metal and grip has a diamond design detail and the company emblem. This is from the late 1940's or 1950's.
It measures about 5 7/8" long and is in fairly good, original condition with some discoloration to the metal. I have not tried to buff or polish it.
