A spud gun (also known as a potato cannon) is a pipe-based cannon which uses air pressure or combustion of a gaseous fuel, or both (hybrid), to launch large objects at low speed. They are built to fire chunks of potato or to fire other sorts of objects, for fund or practical use.

I have a spud-gun my Grandfarther gave me when I was 7 years old in P.A.. I,m now 45 and Istill have the gun. On the handle is stamped E.J. Cossman Hollywood California. #504 spud-gun. Is it worth anything considering its age
