from: Trey Stubbs: “Found this tin litho bank today, he was way out in the country! Made by J. Chein & Company in the late 40’s and early 50’s. He tips his hat when you put a coin in the organ :-)”

from: Beverly Seaton: “Beverly Seaton’s mechanical coin bank”

from: Jackie Johnston Underschultz: “Bought this very heavy cast iron horse bank at an auction today. About 10″ tall at top of ears. Can anyone tell me anything about it?”

from: Jamie Walden: “Pretty sure this is a vintage bank. It’s made of iron. Any thoughts?”

from: Sheryl Malone Persicke: “I found this coin container at an estate sale. It is made of plastic and has a metal screw-on cap with a slot. One side has the Pledge of Allegiance (without “under God”) with “1940” and “C.R. Sutherland” at the bottom. The other side has a quote by Benjamin Franklin that states in “If you put nothing into your purse you can take nothing out.” Below this it states “Fill this jingle bank with dimes you’ll find it handy many times.” At the bottom it has “Dayton, O.” and “Copyright”. I searched the name C.R. Sutherland, thinking it might be the manufacturer, but could not find anything that linked to this container. I’m guessing it may have been handed out by a bank back then and am hoping someone may know about its history. Thanks.”

from: Amanda Jo Dahl: “I love collecting these cute, colorful banks from the 1960s and 70s! It all started with the turtle, which sat on a shelf above my crib. “

from: Georgia Wingate Thompson: “The one in the middle actually contained syrup and the two on the ends are banks. Wish I had one from the 50’s!”
