MECHANICAL PENNY BANK EXCHANGE BULLETIN, JANUARY 1949
ROBERT S GREENFIELD         P O Box # 23        Queens Village, NY

     I am pleased to send you this, the first of my series of bulletins on Mechanical Penny Banks.
     On the following pages I have listed the various Bid and Ask prices submitted to me during the pas few weeks. I accepted quotations for those 245 Mechanical Penny Banks as listed in John D Meyer's "HANDBOOK OF OLD MECHANICAL PENNY BANKS" only. For fuller descriptions (physical and mechanical), I must refer you to this fine work on the subject.
     The Asked prices represent banks offered by various subscribers - all were available at presstime. However, as all items are subject to prior sale, I suggest you get your checks for your wants )plus 10%) in to me as quickly as possible. Bid prices, of course, represent the amounts other subscribers are willing to pay for their particular wants.
     When I receive your check for a bank, I shall immediately notify the owner to ship same to me - holding your check. When the bank arrives, I shall inspect it; and, if it is as represented, I shall send it to you. All banks are, of course, sold on a money-back guarantee. . . PROVIDED THAT I RECEIVE THE COMPLAINT WITHIN (5) DAYS.
     I am anxious to receive your offers to buy or sell banks. These listings are free of charge, so don't hesitate sending me your list. Such listings are received up to the 15th of the month will be included in that month's issue.
     I have several subscribers who are interested in purchasing entire collections, and would appreciate hearing from any other collectors who would consider disposing of same.
     A word of caution: When preparing a bank for shipment, be sure to pack carefully after rendering all moveable appendages immobile. Also: Don't forget insurance.
CORRECTIONS:-
  39   Cat and Mouse        Bid: $ 40     Ask:  $65
160   Minstrel, Tin                         20                 22
     I hope that this meets with your expectations and approval - am anxious to hear from you if you have ideas on how I can improve this service. I'm sure that the Bulletin will get better with each succeeding issue.
          Very truly yours,
          ROBERT S GREENFIELD
