I found this "Snoopy" bank at a garage sale a couple weekends ago for a quarter.  He was a little dirty, but cleaned up nicely.  I'm fairly certain it's a knockoff and not a licensed Peanuts product, especially since it doesn't say "Snoopy" anywhere, nor are there any copyrights given to United Features.  Based on his look, I believe he's from the early to mid 1960's.  A good friend told me a friend of his collects knockoff Snoopys and calls them "Snoppies" because of the misspelling on one she has.  This is definitely a "Snoppy".

Either the bank was never used, or the kid had mastered the old butter knife penny removal trick.

This may have been a carnival prize like the other "Snoppies" I have.

I ended up selling this Snoopy on eBay last week for $10.
