When you pull down on the tie bottom, his mouth moves. The back says EXCLUSIVE LISCENCE FROM EDWARD BERGEN AND CHARLIE McCARTHY INC.
Is Charlie McCarthy related to the monopoly millionaire? That is who I thought this was at first...And I wonder why monocles ever went out of fashion...What kind of pin is this for? I don't understand the two prongs. Last year I found this in a box of letters in the attic and shoved him in my pocket and forgot all about him till now. Was a nice surprise when I put on winter coat yesterday :)

    here is one like yours with double clasp . I saw several with one pin and this with 2 . I don't know why 2 but maybe for thicker material ?

    Thanks Manikin! I couldn't resist him, in that envelope for eons and then in pocket for a whole year, I think if he could talk he'd probably be swearing at me!
