This Mickey Mouse coin bank is cast iron (thus, very heavy), and he is very old. Researching him, I find two models, one standing 5.5 inches tall and one standing 9.25 inches tall. This one that I am offering is the 9.25 inch tall bank. Also, while researching I found a couple of statements that the 9.25 inch model is from the 1930s.
He is an estate sale find.
Mickey is wearing red shorts, black shoes, and his signature white gloves. His right hand is up and waving. He was originally hand painted and as you can see some of the paint has worn off and is missing. You can leave him as is, which adds to the vintage character, or he can be repainted.
He consists of two pieces, the front and the back. The coin slot is on the back. The slot is wide enough to accept penny, nickel, dime, and quarter coins. To open him and remove the change, there is a screw in the center of his back.
By the way, because of his heaviness, he can also be used as a doorstop.
Because of how heavy he is, Mickey will be mailed by USPS Priority Flat Rate service. Delivery is from Nevada. The package will be insured and will require a signature for delivery. Buyer to pay $12.95 USPS Priority Flat Rate Package shipping charges.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
