Cannon Fire Jr., 1934

Features: 10 balls for 5 cents. Ball kickers (4). Two rollover switches in upper playfield, each covered with an aluminum tunnel for the ball to pass through. The two lower cannons are automatic ball kickers, propelling the ball upfield immediately when contact is made. Each of the two upper cannons holds the ball and does not kick it until another ball passes through the covered rollover switch above it on the same side of the playfield. Game was advertised as 44 inches long by 22 inches wide.

Notes: Part of the Spirit of America series. The owner of the game pictured here describes it as having its original finish along with a nice cleaning and waxing. The owner also comments that the playfield pins appear to be plastic instead of metal. They may really be plastic-coated metal pins, used to deaden sound. The game had previously been converted to AC line power thus the batteries are not present. The marbles are new. The back of the cabinet is stamped with the number 206C. The playfield shows patent number 1378175 which is for a skittle game patented May 17, 1921 to José Keckeis of Portland, Oregon. A careful reading of the patent text reveals no obvious connection between that 1921 skittle game and this 1934 pinball game.
