Found a vintage Black Americana Cast Iron Mechanical Coin Bank at a garage sale the other day. This bank is really in great shape for it's age, probably 1940's or 1950's. Although it would be considered a racist in today's world, these old pieces of black characters were a part of America's past. Today, they call it Black Americana and it usually goes high dollar at auctions. This particular bank would probably go for $100 at auction, give or take a few dollars.
