    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!!

      Very cool little bank! Fort Knox is less than 30 minutes from me.

      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. :)
