**********************************************************************
The savings bank is made of sheet metal and shaped as a cash register.
The register counts 3 different coins ...

   NICKLES = 5 Cent   &   DIMES = 10 Cent   &   QUARTERS = 25 Cent

The  AMOUNT DEPOSITED  is displayed in a  DOLLAR-  &  CENT-Window

Dimensions:   (ca.)  Width   =  4_1/2" /  12 cm
                     Depth   =  5_1/4" /  13 cm
                     Height  =  6_1/4" /  16 cm

Manufacturer:        DURABLE TOY & NOVELTY CORPORATION

======================================================================
In contrary to common savings banks, this one has no "Cheat-Exit" -
No key-door, no twist-lid, no rubber stopper, ...

After 25 Cents are in and the lever is pulled to count the actual
amount, the  FRONT DOOR  IS LOCKED  until the saving has reached
10 Dollar and the counter is showing   00 : 00  again ...

On the back side are (1st) a round opening for "PAPER MONEY"  and
(2nd) a larger slot for BIGGER COINS ( 50 Cents or SilverDollars ).
This gave Mom & Dad, GrandMa & -Pa ... options for secrete donations.

R E M A R K :  The DIRECTIONS on its back are mostly faded out.
