His mouth is open and it looks as if a dime would fit through it, doesn’t it? But it doesn’t. His dignity was saved and only the back to of his head would accept coins. Made in England (maker unknown) and from the feel of the iron, around the 1890’s, very smooooth and real quality. He is in the “PENNY BANK BOOK” by the Moore’s on page 71, center shelf, center bank! He is M# 171 and rated “D”. (“A” is most common, “B” is a bit harder to find, “C” etc). But the rate only goes to “F” So a “D” is really getting VERY hard to find!! His paint can be seen on the many photos and he is 5 1/8″ X 4 7/16″. All original, never repainted and no breaks or repairs. Just a great looking proud gentleman made to hold coins. That’s only fair and all sellers should do that, but the don’t! ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEED OLD AND AUTHENTIC! Please use the checkout.
