Vintage Punch Nutcracker No 776837 Cast Iron Victorian?

This auction is for a very old nutcracker.
I am pretty sure he is meant to be punch and dates from around the early 1900's.
He is quite detailed with a biggish nose, a beard and teeth and has a registered number of 776837.
He is heavy and made of cast iron, he would have had a brass coating originally.
He measures approx. 9" long.
Thank you for looking, please see my other items.
