This is a vintage 1960s Ohio Art tin lithographed world globe coin bank. The globe has a few dents. The base is decorated in blue and gold with the signs of the zodiac. The bank is 5" wide and 7" tall. 1962 was the year John Glenn made his famous triple orbit of the Earth in Mercury 7...If you look just off the coast of Florida you'll see his name accompanied by a series of three rings consisting of dots, dashes and dots & dashes. This globe is a historically significant American Space Race era artifact. As near as I can tell, it dates to around 1964-1965, based on the map of Africa. Zambia and Rhodesia are present, as are the Congo Republic and Tanzania. Vietnam is divided. There is no Bangladesh.
