This H&H Registering Savings Bank has been in a private collection for 25 years. It is made of nickel plated cast iron and was patented on April 7, 1891. This bank has both a 1 cent and a 10 cent compartment and each side operates the same. To add coins, pull out the lever and insert a coin in the slot. Next, push the lever back in and the coin is registered on the counter located on the front. The door automatically opens when either $1 on the 1 cent side or $10 on the 10 cent side has been registered. The counter does, in fact, work. There are also two sheet steel swing traps on the bottom which are independent of each other. The bank has no dings or dents, but does display some tarnish due to usage and wear. Please refer to the pictures for clarity. Overall, the bank is in very good condition. The dimensions are 5 1/8" x 2 3/14" x 3 5/8".
