Vintage COMIC WEEKLY CLUB Tin Litho Wood Spinner Clown! - eBay (item 310030918317 end time Mar-17-08 17:06:18 PDT)
This vintage Comic Weekly Club tin litho spinner with a clown probably came out around 1948 or '49. The Comic Weekly Club was a short-lived feature that ran along with the regular Sunday newspaper comics and had puzzles and games that used the images of many of the King Features characters. The clown was just a logo image.
The tin measures 1 1/2 inches across with a wooden spinner handle and point about 1 inch long. It spins great! The underside has two tiny union logos all over it. What looks like a tiny bit of rust at the top of the clown's forehead was dirt that's gone now.
