    Good Evening CW Members----(11:00 PM)2016-6-6
    Alway and every time on any field of collecting, collectors look for the piece will make the rest of the collection stand up, and when this is happen, make you feel like work accomplish.
    I collected promotional advertising steel bank for a long period of time now, never think i will able to grab something so unusual and scarce and this item was really part of the company history, better than see there name engraved on the top Bank itself, will so surprise to see there name on the front plate of the steel Bank, this little promotional advertising bank was promoted by W.F.Burns for them self as a sample to show to the assuming potential customers how they look like, operated.
    This one is oval shape, slot on the right side for coins and hole on the left for bills, small curve carrying handle with serial number on it, dark brown copper with red copper swirl electroplate design.
    On the front plate we can read "The W.F.Burns Co,Chicago,ill"

    This little oval bank stand 2.50 inch high, 3.75 inch long, 2 inch deep.

    Thanks for Viewing.

      Great touch ! The salesman's sample is the pinnacle of a collection of this type. So, what's your goal now ?
