Recently while visiting friends I saw that they had on their shelves an old set of checkers in the original box.
The label tells me that they were “One-inch Sanitary Checkers” manufactured by the G.H. Harris Company of Brooklyn NY. They were White and Green rather than Red and Black (the box was stamped to indicate this, the original printing indicated red and black) and instead of a crown on the obverse they had a swastika (“proper” widdershins orientation and all).
I guess they date back to the 1920s or early 30s, when a swastika was still a neutral decorative element.
I can find nothing about them in my exhaustive five-minute Googling frenzy, so I am turning to the Dopers. Does anyone know when they were made, and how much might they be worth to a toy collector?
