A jaunty sailor with his seabag on his shoulder and a smile on his face forms this bank by McCoy. His seabag has a slot for savings; his underneath has the metal plug for accessing your treasure. The blue metal plug says: The Seaman’s Bank for Savings. This is the business that commissioned the sailor bank after WWII. McCoy did not mark this piece because it was marked for the commissioning bank. The measurements are 5.5 inches tall and 5.25 inches wide. This piece shows little evidence of use for a piece this big. It was purchased in Roseville, Ohio, the place of its origin. Small bits of black glaze are missing from the back foot. A few shelf marks on the hem of the pants show wear. The facial features remain in good condition. He is as handsome as ever.
