1915 Cast Iron Mechanical Bank Similar to the St. Louis Exposition Worlds Fair Key Bank. Cast Iron Mechanical Bank is similar to the St. Louis Exposition Worlds Fair Key Bank, circa 1904 which is listed in Andy Moore bank book as # 1665, rated E for rarity. It has the same dimensions as Moore’s # 1665. Original finish is in great shape! Please review the pictures. This bank was probably designed by William J Somerwill, of Cleveland, Ohio. This is the rarer cast iron version of the two Key Banks made, it has the original copper electroplated and has good patina. Rarely do these key banks come up. This Key Bank has Nice all Original Finish. There are no cracks, chips, or missing parts. It tells about a rare and unique Key Box. Deposits are accomplished by placing a coin into the allocated slot inside the oval head of the key, whereupon it drops into the barrel. Coin removal, however, is unique, and accounts for the banks semi-mechanical classification. A combination type lock is utilized; but rather than opening a safe door to retrieve monies, it releases a small arrowhead shaped bar in order to expose the coin removal slot. I do not know the combination to open this bank. The item “1915 Cast Iron Semi-Mechanical KEY Bank Copper-Electroplated Finish” is in sale since Thursday, September 9, 2021.
