    Description

    Tammany Hall Cast Iron Mechanical Bank. Retaining much of the original paint, this bank is dated June 3, 1875 and is a spoof on the political scandal that took place in New York at Tammany Hall. The bank is 6" tall and still works by putting a coin in the man's hand and having it flip into his coat pocket. Bottom wired to the front, overall wear and grime, else in good condition.
