This taxi cab bank was produced between 1927 through 1928. This Arcade taxi bank is 8long and it is in very strong condition with a orange body and hood andblack roof and running boards. This is the much scarcer double stripe versionof this cab with the side stripes cast into the cab go all the way to front ofthe radiator and has an orange painted hood verses the normal arcade cabs andcab banks that only have a single stripe and black painted hood versus theorange painted hood on this toy. This example has castiron wheels with orange painted inserts and original rubber tires on one side a replacement set of rubber tires on the other, although both sides of the toy look like older tires that have aged. The paint shows verylittle if any play wear and is very strong (about 90% paint remaining) there issome dirt in the paint that can be removed but I leave that to thenew owner. On the bottom of the toy cab there is cast in raised letter 2 overARCADE on the passenger side and MADE IN over U. A on the driver side. The taxi comes the original cast iron driver painted black with an orange brimon his hat, in a heavy dark patina from age. All parts are correct and original to the toy. The toy is missing the bank trap for the bottom of the taxi but I will send a new replacement with the toy. There are no cracksbreaks or chips in the cast iron. I have a fine set of original cast iron toys this week so please check out my other auctions.
