1925 Automatic Novelty Co. Barbell Lifter

Description: Barbell Lifter, Automatic Novelty Company, 1925, seen in the Mike Munves catalog during the 1950s as "the Striking Clock." Insert a penny and pull up on the barbell with either with a curling motion or with a shoulder pull. The more you pull, the more strikes of the clock mechanism you are awarded. If you pull to twelve O'clock then the bell is struck 12 times. The loud bell signals to everyone in the arcade that you are very strong.
