Black Americana Cast Iron Coin Bank.

Guaranteed antique cast iron coin bank in the form of a black man, we believe is manufactured by A. C. William circa 1901. Has been owned by one southern lady for over 100 years! Among collectors this character is nicknamed "Darkey ", with no offense intended to anyone. This bank shows original paint of black with red and gold-tone areas highlighting the hat and shirt.The man's toes are visible on his left foot. This bank measures slightly less than 5.5-inches in height with width of 3 inches. The coin slot is on the man's back is at shoulder height, and the bank opens by a screw on the back. Pre-boxed weight is 14.1 ounces. See photos for more details.

This bank is in very good condition, with no damage to the metal surface. The paint is worn somewhat (see photos) given it's age of over a century.
