    Hi CW Gang:

    A BLAST from the PAST. A 1960's Toy Bank that encouraged kids to Save. Gray galvanized metal "safe" has a combination lock door with a plastic dial, rubber feet and a slot on top big enough for coins and bills. The lock does work. It is about 6&1/8" tall by 5&3/4" wide by 4" deep.

    I think every kid back then had one. We had one but my brother has it now so I HAD to buy this one several years ago - for Sentimental / memory reasons. Just another thing from my stuff here at home that is from the family, or I collected.

    Thanks for LOOKING / LOVING!!

      Ha, my little brother had one of these, it spent more time being opened and raided, than closed and saving, lol! What a nice memory, thanks for sharing, Rose. :)
