1919 Liberty Bell Still Bank - Mechanics Savings Bank
$45.00

Measuring 4 inches high with a 3.75 inch base diameter, this authentic looking 1919 Patent model of the historic Philadelphia Liberty Bell, is in wonderful all-original condition!

Given away as a premium for opening a bank account, this bank advertises the Mechanics Savings Bank of Hartford, Connecticut.

The bank is complete with the famous Liberty Bell crack down its front as well as this slogan etched around its top, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All The Inhabitants Thereof. LEV XXV 10".

Manufactured by the Bankers S & C System Company, Cleveland, Ohio, this bank bears a patent date of February 18, 1919, as inscribed on its base. Made of metal and wood. The whereabouts of the original key is unknown but it is likely that any flat metal key of the period of the appropriate size would open it.

A fine decorative piece for either the still bank collector or Revolutionary War buff!
