Uncle Sam Cast Iron Mechanical Bank
Authentic foundry iron mechanical bank
Popular since the war of 1812, mechanical banks are collectible art worldwide. This one, cast in foundry iron from a historic 1880s mold by the Shepard Hardware Company, is authentic from top hat to soapbox. Uncle Sam s beard moves as the coin in his spring-loaded hand drops smartly into the U.S. treasury bag at his feet. Hand-painted to highlight each original detail!
4½"Wx3½"Dx10½"H. 7 lbs.
Uncle Sam Cast Iron Mechanical Bank is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and fun to boot! This bank is just the sort of well sculpted, well made, and fun skeleton products that I seek out for my skeleton collection. It is heavy, solid, and has a whimsical and vintage vibe that sets it apart from the typical Halloween type decorations. And it's functional ( if you find yourself needing a piggy bank these days.) It can be a little tricky to get the coin into the mouth, but its fun nonetheless. And the price is really reasonable. This is the sort of items that your family will pass down for generations. Love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Want more for the money. This bank is not as colorful as it could be. The classic Red White & Blue as well as the overall tone is extremely muted. It's a classic all right, but could use an overhaul, like the tax system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I had this bank as a kid, and I lost it in a house fire. Thank goodness for design toscano. Its really well crafted, substantial in weight, sturdy, good detail. Will probably last 1000 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL! The arm of this bank does not move well when the button is pushed. The hand does not release the coin, and there is no pleasure in this bank, because it just does not work. Poor quality. I purchased other mechanical banks from this web site and had no problem. I will be returning this item.
