Scarce J & E Stevens "Lion Hunter" Cast Iron Mechanical Bank
Here is one of the nicer, and more sought after, original cast iron Mechanical Banks - due to its scarcity and great subject matter. Manufactured by J. & E. Stevens, Circa 1880s, this is called the "Lion Hunter" Mechanical Bank. You put the coin on "Teddy Roosevelt's" gun, press the lever, the Lion's trap opens and the coin is shot into the bank. Mechanism works well. This one overall is in wonderful condition - as seen in the pictures. Strong original paint with mica still visable. Little wear. No breaks or cracks. Don't miss this rare bank and please ask any questions. Buy with confidence. Thanks.
