Have these two antique banks just wondering if anyone can tell me anything about them. Interested in any history/date info on them also if possible an approximate worth of them each. Not looking to sell just curious. Thanks for looking.
First one is stamped "The Bankers Service Corporation. New York Patent no. 1011521" and is stamped with the companys logo. It has slots for bills, $5 gold pieces, cents, dimes, halfs, nickles and quaters. It's the rectangle shaped bank with the handle in the pictures. It's in great shape just needs to be cleaned up a little.
The other one is stamped "UNION TRUST COMPANY NO. 15235" (on top by the key hole). The Bottom is stamped with a bunch of stuff (haha) it goes as follows:
"original compartment recording safe patents
THE SAVINGS TELLER

patented: SEPT. 8-1913 SEPT. 23-1913

It's the oval/oblong shaped bank in the pics, It is in very good shape has the box and 2 keys.
Just wondering some info about them.
Thanks for looking.
