For your consideration is a vintage Black Memorabilia cast iron bank in the shape of a African American man with his arms on his sides, a hat on his head & strange, but probably suppose to be a pair of boots, on his feet. There is a raised saying on the front of him that reads: "Give Me A Penny." There is a slot on the top of his back to put money in and a hole, that doesn't go all the way through, on the back of his hat. The hole is probably from where it was attached to the mold when manufactured. There is a Clark's screw on the back that looks like it is a replacement, because it still has some shine to it. However, the bank, itself, has a dark patina overall from age, especially on the bottom of the boots. Manufactured by A.C. Williams, ca. 1901. Approx.: 5 1/2"T.
