Kalon must have figured that if they made a boy bank, then they better make a girl bank. And they did. Based on Fred Schnabolk's 1949 patent, 2,463,433, who assigned his patent to Kalon Radio Corp., here we have the "Vacation Daily Dime Bank".
This just a great image of a little girl feeding the ducks while on vacation. She's hanging onto her bag of dimes though for the rest of her vacation.
Size: 2 ½ inches x 2 ½ inches x 5/8 inch
Condition: The condition of this bank is very good with just a couple of items to mention. There is a rub spot on the "O" in "VACATION". And there is a scratch and rub spot on her left sleeve. We would call these pretty "picky" in looking at this bank. But you can see them.
There is so little evidence of edge-wear, that we don't think this bank was ever used. The lithography is excellent and the back looks brand new with just a couple of what appear to be, shelf-wear spots.
This bank has been tested and it works well. Once Five Dollars has been reached, pressing the back panel will push in the panel. There is a pin that goes through the hole in the front of the bank, allowing the panel to open widely. This only happens once during the saving period.
With the lack of edge-wear, we believe it would be difficult to find a comparable example.
