Kyser & Rex Cast Iron Lion & Monkeys Mechanical Bank
Here is a great early cast iron mechanical bank from Kyser and Rex patented 7/17/1883. It is called the "Lion & Monkeys" mechanical bank. Size is 9-1/4" high and 10" in length. The coin is placed in the monkey's hand - by moving the handle at the base it causes the monkey to throw the coin into the Lions open mouth. Condition on this piece is very nice, as seen in the pictures. No breaks or cracks. Replaced trap, and small monkey - like most of the Lion & Monkey banks. The base is really nice - all original with no touch-ups. Don't miss this opportunity to own one of these nice rare banks. Buyer pays shipping. (Insurance is included in the shipping and handling fees for an estimate of $1100). Please check out my other items currently listed, and save on shipping. NO RESERVE.
