Turnpike Toll Gun

Introduced circa 1962 by Lyman Metal Products, the Turnpike Toll Gun allowed drivers to shoot quarters and nickels into toll baskets. I imagine that, nowadays, whipping one of these things out at a toll booth could get you in trouble. But it's still possible to pick one up on eBay if you gotta have one.

Those of us of a certain age remember the drama of having to toss coins in turnpike toll baskets... so a gadget like this would have been welcome. But all things considered, I’ll take EZ-Pass any day.

I remember an old Mad Magazine collection of "inventions" which included this. With art of someone using it on a human attendant with unpleasant effects.
