Date: Unknown but most likely late 1800s (19th century) or early 1900s (20th century).
Origin: Purchased at an estate auction in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Size: The bank measures ~5" at its longest, ~3 3/4" at its highest point, and is ~1 3/4" at its widest. The bank weighs over one pound.
Marks: The bank is unmarked.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice, very interesting and hard to come by still penny bank which would make a nice addition to your collection.
Condition: This cast iron bank is rather rare and very difficult to find. It is bank 758 in Andy and Susan Moore's book. It is in very good condition. It has no breaks and no repairs. The bank is all original with no losses. It has developed a dark patina over the years but still shows the gold coloring under the patina. We have opened the bank and could not find any markings on the onside. The bank shows some soiling, scratches to the surface, and general light wear to the paint, which can be seen in the photos. Be that as it may, this is a great looking bank worthy of a spot in your collection. Please view photos to appreciate beauty of this bank and for additional condition information.
