This cast iron toy cannon fragment was recovered in 1995 during a highway salvage project undertaken by Kansas Historical Society archeologists at a Chautauqua County farmstead. Cast iron toys were made by a method called sand casting, where molten iron was poured into a mold made of tightly packed sand. This toy was cleaned by electrolysis which passes an electrical current through a liquid solution to separate the rust from the artifact.

Date: 1900-1965
