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!¿
