Shepard Cast Iron "Stump Speaker" Mechanical Bank Nice!
Here is a nice Shepard Hardware Co. mechanical bank called "Stump Speaker". Circa 1880s. You put the coin in his hand, press the knob on the base, the arm lowers and drops the coin into his satchel. His jaw then drops open. Mechanism works. This is in good condition - as seen in the pictures. No breaks or cracks. The trap looks like a replacement with key . This bank has some nice strong paint - particularly his face and shirt. Base is missing some paint as seen in the pictures. Please ask questions. Don't miss an opportunity to own one of these unique early banks.
Price: $1375 SORRY! SOLD!
