    Got this many years ago from one of two brothers who had a store (both now deceased)!

    How old?

    Value $500 or $5,000.00 US or more?

    Etc, please?

      Looks like it was manufactured in 1939/40 by William Bingham Co. sold for $3.00 new. value would be around $45.00, more if you had the original box.

      Thanks very much Ttom!

      Was that a big co?

      Or he made it himself?
      In the USA?

      How long did it survive?

      You have one?

      The W. Bingham Co. was a large Cleveland, OH hardware company that dates back to the 1885. they sold tools in the early days and branch out to other products until 1961 when they went out of business. I don't have the toy bank telephone. I do collect antique telephones and have run across toy telephones all the time.
