Flying A Advertising Basset Hound Dog Bank "Axelrod "An original, one owner , plastic basset hound bank from around 1965. He was an advertising mascot for the Flying A Service Stations. He's in pretty good shape, considering his age, with some scuff marks, spots of missing paint, and a small chip out of the bottom of his right foot. He has a coin slot on his back. The stopper underneath is missing. The red, Flying A logo is on the collar. "Axelrod" was featured in Flying "A" Service Station advertisements in the 1960's. The floppy-eared, worried-looking hound appeared in a "Worry" campaign accompanied with pharses like "When it comes to your car....oooh, do we worry!".
