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. The trap is original but missing a key (can be found easily in the aftermarket) . This bank has some nice paint, and areas where it is missing. Also, I see a small hairline in the base by his front feet. Please ask questions. Don't miss an opportunity to own one of these unique early banks.
Price: $1805 SORRY! SOLD!
