So I am sure the wash board and ax are CJ. Or at least they match the ones in my book. The pick ax and crow bar not so sure. The pick ax is tin. The crow bar is made like a real crow bar. It has Allen on it. Could be a real tool for very small work. Any help appreciated. https://ibb.co/1RQWLg7

Like yu, I know the washboard and hatchet are Cracker Jack, but not the other two. I don't remember any archive pictures of those, either, but still a very cool find! I have a whole bag of "iffy" stuff. Maybe someday something will turn up. Alex, Theresa, what do you think?

OK, I did some research and finally found this pick tin to be from the National Leaf Tobacco company. I am not sure if it came on a pack of loose leaf tobacco or where it would have been attached to. The dogs are from Ideal dog food company and I don't know where they would have come from, in a bag of dog food maybe? I still have no idea about the crow bar. Its not tin its hard steal. It could be some thing made as a give away promotion from a company that made tools. It is heavy enough to be used as a small crow bar for brads ect. Its as heavy made as an Allen wrench.
