Hello, I have this child's fishing pole made by the New York Toy & Game MFG. N.Y. . This is my first post so please forgive for any mistakes. I would like to know when was this made and how much this would be worth. I found a similar bait can on another site and they were wanting $26 for it alone. Well thanks everyone I appreciate your info..
Printed on the bottom edge should read "Mason Can Co." Looks like they were in business from 1945-1957. http://www.libraries.psu.edu/findingaids/1857.htm This looks like it may be from early production. I have seen the can go for $20-$80. Not found the fishing rod and reel as of yet.
