BIG PRICE CUT CHECK IT OUT! Yes they are making similar designs now, but this is NOT one of them. GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC & OLD, right out of an old collection, into mine and now for sale. Look at the outstanding paint! Some sellers put oil on the paint to make it look better than it actually is, but that’s a bad idea. Oil will NOT come off and it ruins the finish! Near mint, means NEAR MINT! Not fixed up to look good. Yes that is fussy! All original is the way to find the best, and even the bottom is complete with the coin cover. That will show in the last of 8 photos. Some of the photos show the child’s hand up, and some down. Some with the apple and some with the apple back. Embossed date on the bottom 1885, and just look at that paint! One of the very best banks I have ever kept for my own collection. To make it work, you pull the top of the rifle back’till it clicks. Put the coin on the front top of the rifle, and make sure the apple is on the child’s head. Push down on the hunters foot to shoot the coin into the apple and into the bank. The child’s right arm goes up and the coin in then in and safe. To reload, the child’s arm is down, which pulls the apple back on his head. You could put a “cap” into the gun, and it will make a noise as it goes off, but not a good idea. Old iron is to be protected, not tested and this bank is over 115 years old. The way it works is exciting enough! THAT’S ONLY FAIR TO US BOTH. ALSO WE DO NOT CHARGE YOU FOR SUPER PACKAGING. GUARANTEED OLD AND AUTHENTIC! Please use the checkout.
