Daniel Boone Lunch Box

Description (Brief)
This steel lunch box was manufactured by Aladdin Industries in 1956. The lunch box features an image of Daniel Boone fighting a group of Native Americans on one side, and shooting a charging bear on the other. Both Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett became very popular characters in the mid-20th century due to their television shows, and coonskin caps became a rage among young children.
