Vintage Metal Cash, Coin Box Army Green Paint
This is a metal cash or coin box painted Army green. The box has five slots on the lid, which can be lifted to retrieve the contents of the box. The inside of the box is divided into five parts using metal partitions. It may have been used as a coin bank with slots for 50c, 25c, 10c, 5c, and 1c. Retrieval of the coins is made easy by the curved slope of each part of the box.
There are the usual scratches and user marks. A patent number is stamped into the underside of the lid: PATENT NO. 392277. There is a lock mechanism but we do not have the key.
The box measures 7 3/4 inches x 4 3/4 inches x 2 1/2 inches.
