Up for sale is this rare yellow base version of the J. Stevens “Always Did Spise A Mule” mechanical bank. A cross collectible for both those who collect Black Americana as well as those who focus on mechanical banks. The bank does work, but I had to use something to pull back the clip to re-seat the jockey, I’ve never had one of these so I’m not sure how common that is. This is fresh out of a Boston estate, and I have not attempted to clean it at all, as evidenced by the pockets of dust in the crevices. Please view all 12 photos to help judge condition, the last two photos show a crack that is present on side where the jockey sits, nothing else jumped out as me, but as I said this is the first I have had, so I may be overlooking something, so use the zoom function, inspect the photos and ask any questions you may have. Measures about 10 1/4″ x 6″ x 3. The item “Original Stevens Always Did Spise A Mule Cast Iron Bank Rare Black Americana” is in sale since Sunday, January 29, 2017.
