Keeney “Target Skill” 1925 – (USA)

This is the one that started it all, way back in 1925. The Model A had 5 targets that got smaller from left to right. Hitting a target dropped a flag with a colored dot on it. Scores were manually added up by the shooter. With only five shots for a penny, a perfect score was possible but very difficult.
