Here's how to tell the original cannon from a reproduction: "Made in Japan" is molded into the underside.
In addition, the original fires tiny projectiles.

#24055 Gold Belt 55 Boxcar made in 1960-1961 with both Knuckle and Pike Master couplers.
It's a little hard to see in this picture, but there is a non-operating door molded into the plastic.
It was also made without that door.
Unlike most American Flyer cars, the other side isn't the same.
#24750 FY&PRR Combination Car made in 1960 & 1961.  It was painted plastic.
Though a passenger car, it was sold only in the #20655 Frontiersman Freight set.
