THIS IS NOT THE USUAL MCCOY SAILOR BANK! THIS IS AN OBVIOUS FACTORY SECOND/REJECT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN HOME AT END OF THE DAY -- WHICH IN ITSELF ADDS TO ITS COLLECTIBLE STATUS! BANK HAS NO STRUCTURAL FLAWS, THEY ARE ALL COSMETIC. THE GLAZE IS AN OFF-WHITE, CREAM COLOR (FIRST FIRING), DOESN'T HAVE THE FINAL WHITE COLOR. THERE ARE GLAZE RUNS AND SOME BLACK PAINT FLECKS & SPECKS UNDER THE GLAZE. THERE ARE TWO GLAZE RUBS AT BASE (PANT LEG). ON THE PLUS SIDE, FACIAL FEATURES ARE CLEAR AND WELL DONE, IT IS OBVIOUSLY MCCOY -- NOT AN IMITATION -- AND I'M SURE THERE AREN'T MANY OF THESE TO BE FOUND! INTERESTING ITEM.
