IT'S A $100,000 MONEY BOX!!!!
****we're sorry, but the box contains no cash. Actually, that's why we've put it up for sale....our cash supply never seems to get so outta control as to need a nifty little stash box like this one!

Oh, but the lid also states that the box has other uses as well..."FOR FUN, FOR GAMES, FOR YOUR SECRET PAPERS." Maybe I should hang onto this...it's a nice sized box for art supplies and such.

This was made by the Ohio Art Company, most likely in the early 1970's. They manufactured really neat tin toys back in the day. I've never seen this particular item though....it's a fun little tin chest with carrying handle. The metal catch on the front has loops so that you can padlock this baby shut.

The lid's interior has a blank space for writing the owner's name. This area was never filled out. The interior of the lid also reads:
$100,000 Money Box
Protect Your Savings
Save for U.S. Government Bonds
Lock Up Your Secret Letters

The previous owner apparently used this tin for keeping a Crayola collection safe, as there are crayon marks here and there on the interior walls.

The exterior graphics are a nice color combination of red, yellow and blue. There are also rows of red dollar signs printed on three sides of the lid's edge...brilliant were those designers at the Ohio Art Company. Like, who wants to draw attention to their cash stash?...come on now. It's bad enough that "100,000 MONEY BOX" is printed in gigantic lettering across the top!

This vintage & fun storage item measures 8 1\/8th inches by 3 5\/8th inches. It stands 1 1\/2 inches tall.

This isn't in pristine condition. The exterior shows wear to the paint, though mainly at the edges. There are random, small scuffs here and there, plus the left side of the box is slightly dented inward. No biggie though, because the box still does its job of safequarding your treasures, all while lookin' good doing it!

Wow, look- A One Hundred Thousand Dollar Money Box.
