This is Corky My first Piggy Bank! Corky was made in the USA in 1957, the paint and porceline are mint no chips. Missing is the cork for his nose, anyone with info on how to find a replacement is much welcome.

    I have one of these in mint condition that a friend of mine asked me to sell for her on E-bay. I just measured the cork which is an inch in diameter and has a gold-tone ring attached. If you just want a cork, I would say go to a craft store or hardware store and get one of the app. size and you can also get a similar ring to affix to the cork.
    Also, I just saw this on Ebay for replacement cork but didn't read far enough to see if it is an original or replica:

    Good luck!
