Cast Iron Cabin Bank, 1885
Ethnic Theme Bank
Wonderful old cast iron Black Americana Cabin mechanical penny bank. Made in Cromwell, Ct. by J. & E. Stevens c.1885. . Place penny on top front of roof, pull lever and man flips up and kicks penny into bank. The bank measures 3 5/8" tall x 2 7/8" wide x 4 1/4" deep and is in very nice operating condition. The bank is in very nice working condition with nice paint and original coin trap. (see photo's) VERY NICE!! GUARANTEED OLD AND ORIGINAL with No rust, cracks, breaks or repairs. And most important, 90-95% of original paint remaining!
As antique bank collectors know, the primary issue with antique cast iron bank value is amount of original paint. The difference in value between 10-50% or 50-90% remaining original paint if dramatic.
