Antique late 1800s cast iron painted mechanical William Tell coin piggy bank by J&E Stevens. Features Swiss folk hero William Tell with a musket rather than his traditional crossbow, aiming at the apple on his young sons head. A slide on the top of the gun barrel is notched back and a coin is placed in front of it. Pressing Tells foot releases the the slide, shooting the coin over the childs head and into the tower. Tells head also tips when the slide is depressed and flips back with the recoil of the gun when the mechanism is activated. The childs hand raises when the apple is knocked off his head, acting as a lever to replace it.
