The Trick Dog- Cast Iron Mechanical Bank
Don't be Duped
When he got home, he said he couldn't read the bottom of it. After using a pencil and paper and rubbing the bottom, we were able to determine that it was made in Tiawan. Making it a replica, not an original from the late 1880's.
While he was disappointed, he did find that the condition his was in, was still selling for approximately $35.
There are several variations of the Trick Dog Mechanical Bank, especially with the replicas. One thing to look at closely, of course is where it is made and the date. Secondly, look at the paint. The original paint should look old and most that are still available, will be peeled or worn.
If you can find an original, than you've made a great find. Seeing as that they sell for anywhere from $350 and up depending on the condition., etc.
