I need help with more information about this piece. It is in mint condition with the 4 shells in the original packing. It does work(of course I had to test it) The item is obviously 1940's-1950's (based on address) the cannon is made of all metal so I would guess it is more likely pre-war. The shells are a very hard plastic with hard rubber tips. It is marked Harvill Corporation Los Angeles 45 USA. It is the Harvill Sky Raider Cannon.
I have searched and searched and found no info. on the company or the item. There are none on any of the auction sites. I am looking for any and all info anyone might have: value, history, rarity, etc.
Thanks for all your help!

    Just a wild guess here, but based on the graphics (font, artwork), and the material, I would say this is from the 50s, not pre-war. Since it's mostly metal, that's a clue that it's likely 50s. In the 60s it would have been plastic... it has to be pre 1964, because it uses an old LA mail code- pre zip codes.
