is a fun eBay sale. This offering is a vintage glass piggy bank filled with pennies. My Father had this jar and never put any pennies in the bottle after he moved out of the area in 1969 (as far as I know, I haven't opened the jar to really see what is in t He was a "would be" coin collector so I doubt that any of the pennies are just run of the mill coins but no guarantee on that. He left me some of his old coins as well but trying to figure out the good from the bad is more than I have the time or the talent for. So I have not opened the jar to see what is in t

The piggy bank is marked "New England Syrup", "patent pending". It's in great shape, no cracks or chips and the lid srews on and off easily. I just want to sell it and let the buyer find out if some of the pennies are valuable (if one or two are worth a lot of money I'd love a small commission but don't expect it).

OK, so I cheated a little. I dumped some of the pennies out for a look. I found 1955, 1960, 1945, 1944, 1950, 1923, 1941,1960, 1940, 1955, 1957D, 1948, 1935,19361923, 1941, 1930, 1955, 1946, 1930. But that's not even a 10th of the jar.

Have fun with the bidding! You never know what treasues you may find in the jar!!!

I marked the shipping at $12.00 because this thing is HEAVY. If I get some bids I'll take it to the post office and get a more accurate postage amount including insurance.
