    I picked up this WW2-era Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce advertising bank because it was neat, and the price was great.

    When I got it home and opened it up, there was a big surprise in it:
    The bottom was made from an old sign.

    I'd not seen them use old metal before in making a new bank. The old sign used in the bottom was for some kind of oil made from a seed. Perhaps Flax. Who knows.

    No coins, but a neat find in a neat find.
    Now to find a sign.
