Vintage Gerett Bank - Gerett Book Coin Bank - Baby Book NIB

General

The pieces included in the auction came from my Cousin Bertha's estate which included pieces from Great Aunt Addie's estate. She passed in 2001. We have literally hundreds of boxes of antiques, dishes, collectibles and interesting novelty items to go through. As we investigated the contents of these boxes, we've noticed that many of the boxes were packaged with newspapers dating from 1962 and 1963.

Auction Item

You are bidding on a classic GERETT COIN BANK . This classic Gerett bank was discovered in the estate in its original box. This clever little bank is in the shape of a brown book and the spine reads "100 Years" and " Liberty ". As you open the bank it reads "Liberty National Bank and Trust Company of Louisville ". The bank was discovered in its original box. The box reads:

"Book Coin Bank"

"Looks like a book"

"Feels like a book"

"Opens like a book"

"Your Future is brighter when you...SAVE"

The book was discovered with a small envelope containing the key to lock the bank.

This is a beautiful piece of American history and would be great for a discriminating collector's portfolio. If you collect BANK'S , you must have this piece!

Please mark us a favorite seller, we'll have hundreds of lots from Cousin Bertha's estate coming up for auction very soon and she had hundreds of books and songbooks that may have never been used. We have JELL-O booklets (some older - some newer) that will be coming up for auction and vintage 3-page fold-out recipe mini-advertisements coming soon. We also have over at least 100 vintage cookbooks. So if you are looking for one in particular, let us know and we'll get it posted.

Good luck with your bids.
