This cute vintage miniature Uncle Sam's toy three coin bank, made by Durable Toy and Novelty, Hackensack, New Jersey, is shaped like a cash register. The blue metal bank has slots for coins and a lever to pull down, plus a counter on the front left that shows how much has been deposited. This was made to open when the amount reached $10, but this bank is now for decoration only.

Durable Toy and Novelty made cash registers and cash register banks from 1907 to the 1950s, when it was acquired by the Western Stamping Company. Cash registers made before the acquisition are particularly valued by collectors.

The back of the bank has a hole that with the words "Deposit paper money here" around it. There are also directions printed on the back, but these are only partially legible now. Under the company name and address, it has the number 56, which could be the year it was made.

This little bank is still bright blue but has lots of rust and wear. The cash drawer is punched in and doesn't work, and the labels on the front are all missing. The lever does depress all the way, so the counter might still work, but with no way to get the money out, I didn't try it.

So it's rusty, rustic, and strictly for display, but still a pretty wonderful little item.


Size: 4 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/4 inches deep x 6 1/8 inches tall (10.7 x 13.3 x 15.5 cm)
