But it is still from the 1920's or the 1930's so it is still a very old bank. I am sorry for the misunderstanding on my part. Thank You for Looking. I would change my title but I cannot since I have bids. PLEASE NOTE: I stand corrected this is a reproduction bank , it does have flaws. I bought it because I thought it was really neat. I knew it did not work. I know it is an old bank. How old I do not know. Thank You for looking and have a wonderful day!!!
