This auction is for an antique coin bank from The National Bank of Commerce in Houston Texas. Under the bank name it says 'The Bank of Courtesy'. The back says 'Thrift Pays Dividends' and the binding says 'Save and Have' 'Benjamin Franklin' and at the bottom 'Vol 1'. This bank also comes with a working key, though it is not the original. It looks like the key has been altered by hand to work this bank. The bank is really neat because it does look like an old book, so if you were to put it on a bookshelf with other old books, no one would ever know. It is in great shape and as you can see the inside is what I believe to be copper lining. The machanism at the top is to prevent money from coming out once it was put into the bank. This would be a fantastic addtion to any collection. It is also a great memory of when banks actually cared about their customers and it was worth while to put money away because of reasonable interest rates and a trust that the bank had your best interest in mind. Those days are long gone, but the gifts that the banks gave are nice reminders of what life used to be like.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email and ask!

For an idea of size, please keep in mind that the squares on the back board are each a half inch, so every 2 equals one inch.

I will be more than happy to answer as best as I can!! Also, please be sure to Check out my other items! I am always happy to combine shipping and it is a great way to save!
