My Grandfather bought this for me (and a similar baseball one for my brother) from an antique shop when we were children.
It works totally fine. I've been doing a lot of research on it, and discovered that the original Monkey Bank was by Hubley. I've been told that this is obviously repainted, but that it is unclear whether it is an original or a reproduction.
Does anyone know how I can tell? I would love to learn more about it!
Someone suggested that I get it authenticated, but I have no clue whatsoever as to how I'd do that!
Here are links to some more images of it that are bigger/from different angles (all from my Flickr, so safe links--I promise!):
