This cast-iron mechanical bank shows Uncle Sam holding an umbrella and standing on a decorated base with a carpet bag next to him. The embossed base shows an American eagle holding arrows in its left talon and an olive branch in its right talon, with a banner reading Uncle Sam in its beak. The trap is on the back of the base. This Uncle Sam bank works well and is complete with trap-door and key. The paint appears entirely original. The overall height is 11.5″ , the base is 5″ wide x 4″deep x < 2.5" high, and the weight is 4 pds 12 oz. History: the bank has been in the same (non-smoking) family for over 70 years.
