This old tin is a promotional coin bank from the American Can Company of New York, Chicago and San Francisco as indicated on the top where the coin slot is. Around the tin is a copy of a painting which was in the National Archives Building in Washington D.C. which shows Thomas Jefferson handing the Declaration of Independence to John Hancock with statesmen standing about. The top has a 1 ¼” coin slot and the bottom has a pry out closure, marked Canco, for retrieving your savings. I believe this is from the 1930’s.
It measures about 3 ½” high and just over 2” in diameter. It is in nice condition with good gloss but there is some wear. The tin has a few dents and the paint is scratched or worn along the seam, especially at the top edge and the top of the tin has been scratched with what might be initials.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
