MECHANICAL BANK 1920's BURNETT POSTMAN WITH KEY - ALL ORIGINAL:
FOR SERIOUS COLLECTORS OF MECHANICAL BANKS
Here is an uncommon tin lithograph mechanical bank that has seldom come up for sale in the past 5 to 10 years. Burnett Postman was manufactured by Burnett Limited of London, England in 1927. Tin lithograph. The bank measures approximately 4 1/2" (H) x 3 3/4" (L) x 3 1/2" (W). This is the original British version and not the Chad Valley variation of the 1950's (see pic #7). The bank is in excellent condition and in most areas pristine to near mint with the exception of the roof that has several large scratches. Overall, in great condition. Morphy's price guide lists this bank in similar condition from $900 or more. A very low opening offer is provided.
Original key is included.Date: 1927
Composition: Tin LithographOperation: This bank operates similar to Hall's Lilliput Bank. Place a coin on the tray and the weight of the coin causes the postman to rotate to his right and deposit the coin into the bank.SHIP ONLY TO CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES
