This is one of my unusual treasure finds, a mechanical iron magician bank.I think these banks are in high demand amongst collectors.

    I find your comment interesting. Why would someone want to copy iron coin banks?

    They are made to deceive ! To get your money !

    Many of these are reproductions Ilikeart. This is what Pop is making you aware of and saying. Here is a link that can help you find out if it is an original or not.

    Some are made to deceive and some are made to allow folks who don't have the huge money to enjoy an item.

    Most of the cheap reproductions are easily to tell from an original on close inspection. Post some close up photographs of the bottom and any screws.

    At first look, yours has paint that is indicative of a reproduction. It could be a poor repaint-- post some more photographs and you will get an answer.

    Thanks for the information, it is helpful.
