This bank was a gift from Mom - probably around 1967 because there's a 67 quarter inside the bank. I was 7. Maybe she found this at a farm sale - I've looked this bank up on ebay - many listed but none w/red vest. I think it was a president's collection.

In 1965 my present from grandma was $3.00. When I opened the card I said "wow, thanks 3 pictures of George". So embarrasing - but anyway my mom thought it was cute and started my George collection. She bought me a very nice book w/b/w etchings depicting Washington. I don't have that anymore sadly! And then she gave me this bank.

In 2008 I wore my "I'm proud" George pin (my mom sent to me sometime in the 1980's) and was asked to remove it before voting. Who remembers George Washington politics?
