This a good example of what happens when old meets new. Up for sale is a vintage Post Office lock box door that has been re-tasked as a coin bank. This door, called the "Flying Eagle", was made around 1906 out of brass and is mounted in a handcrafted solid jatoba box. Jatoba is a hardwood from South America.

The box incorporates old world dovetail joinery and a hand-rubbed clear finish that is only fitting for this important piece of Americana. The bottom has felt feet for protection and also contains the three-number combination. The door has been cleaned and is in perfect working order. However, as with all these vintage doors, it does show its 90 year old age.

The box is topped off with a brass coin slot that details the official U.S. lock box designation and is 6 3/8” tall, 5” wide, and 5” deep.
