As a kid my grandmother had hanging in her kitchen a small black thermometer skillet with Local Federal Savings and Loan 50th anniversary. Jump to the late 60's; my dad brought home a plastic tear dropped shaped paperweight that was filled with oil and a small replica of the new Liberty bank tower. After a few years it started leaking and my mom must have thrown it out. Those are just two of the many items that have been produced over the years. I am sure you have or have seen others.

Stayed at a Holiday Inn for our honeymoon. Their gift was a cast-iron (?) skillet which read congratulations. A small wall hanging item.

When my second wife and I got our marriage license I asked the clerk if I kept the receipt and the marriage didn't work out could I get my money back? Sent it registered mail to San Diego but never heard back from them.
