I vote for the animal being a cartoon beaver, in view of its long teeth and short snout. The best I can do with that is Beverwijk (Electrolux), but it looks more like a theme park thingy. From there on I got stuck. I wonder what the beaver is holding in its mouth. Have you figured that out?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Would this be a lead? Selling candy with a picture of a tooth brushing child. Only a brazen marketeer could come up with that.

Neither could I, but companies change logo all the time and vending machine companies are getting scarce.
