The following mechanical banks are cosmetically pretty nice looking, but the mechanics are somewhat crude. Some may not work every time or not very well at all, but they are intriguing in operation, fun to operate, and to see. Sometimes the problem is simply too much paint in the working area which can be easily fixed by working the mechanism repeatedly until it loosens up. These are
the only banks like this that are still being made, and I guess we should be pleased that
someone is still thinking nostalgically. Enjoy! Warning!!! One of our suppliers has announced that they will no longer import mechanical banks! Supplies are drying up!
