Product Story

This is the faithful reproduction of the 1886 cast-iron Uncle Sam mechanical bank that demonstrates one of the earliest methods of direct deposit. The iconic figure stands on a patriotic bank soapbox waiting for a coin to be inserted in his right hand. When a button on the base is pressed, Uncle Sam's carpetbag springs open to accept the contribution, then snaps shut as his mouth opens and closes to express his silent thanks. The bank is painted in vivid colors with all the heft and details of its predecessor. A rubber stopper enables immediate release of funds. 10 3/4" H x 4 1/2" W x 3 1/2" D. (5 lbs.)
