Current Appraisals of Old Toy
PENNY
MECHANICAL BANKS

The following list reflects current prices on mechanical banks, known to exist. I am always in the market to buy these specimens and will pay within 10% of these prices for banks in perfect condition. Condition is the most important factor in determining actual prices, the key for this appraisal of banks herein listed is as follows:

"A" ……..from $ 1.00 to $ 20.00
"B" ……..from 20.00 to 35.00
"C" ……..from 35.00 to 50.00
"D" ……..from 50.00 to 75.00
"E" ……..from 75.00 to 100.00
"F" ……..from 100.00 to 125.00
"G" ……..from 125.00 to 150.00
"H" ……..from 150.00 to 175.00
"I" ….…..from 175.00 to 200.00
"J" ……...from 200.00 to 300.00
"K" ….....from 300.00 to 400.00
"L" ….…..from over $400.00

These prices should help in completing an up to date inventory value of collections.
