Uncle Sam Still Bank 'Composition,' circa 1940

American manufacture; this colorful hand-painted still bank depicting Uncle Sam is all original with no repairs and no repaint. Fabulous crazing throughout indicative of original paint. There is some wear consistent with use and age. It is quite difficult to find, especially in all original condition. It measures 6 3/4" high. Coins are removed via a twist lock hinged trap at the base which is original and intact.
Uncle Sam theme suggests Americana and kind of "folksy".

It is listed in Andy Moore's "The Penny Bank Book" at #149 on page 70.
