Smilin' Sam From Alabam - The Salted Peanut Man
This is a cast iron mechanical bank. I need to go back and find one that actually works. I think they are from the 1950's and there was another one that would dispense peanuts when you pulled it's tongue. I can only guess that there was once a peanut company associated with this, but haven't seen any history about it. I see them on e-Bay running anywhere from $20 to $60.
