This is an Uncle Sam Coin Bank that I bought not sure if its original. I have several other ones that I do know are reproductions they have Tawain on the bottom but this one doesnt. So I don't know. Let me know what you think.

    Additional photos of the sides and bottom would help.

    If original it looks to have been repainted.

    This looks like one made for the centennial back in the 70's. Side and bottom pictures will settle it quickly. More the bottom view and back view where the trap door is.

    Well........they sell online for $15 to $20 so if you have more as you said above you have a start on a collection. You might want to branch out to other things if you are planning on making a profit at some point.

    Im confident I can get at least my money back I have seen ones on ebay sell for nothing up to $40.00 I bought it for my collection anyways.

    If you hang on to it you are bound to make a profit sooner or later.

    I had one of these that I bought on an on line auction... But when it arrived it was missing 1/2 of the money bag :( I ended up getting rid of it because I was so mad for wasting my money...

    Yeah you have to watch some sellers. I have three of these. I think they are so cool.
