The surface finish is 100% original - it has never been restored, repainted, touched up or altered in any way. There are no cracks, chips, breaks, repairs or damage of any kind other than any stated. The spring/firing mechanism is not functioning, displays well. The trap is present, no key to open it. There are no cracks, chips, breaks or damage of any kind other than any stated. 8” long x 2” tall. Estimated book $50.
Will combine, prefer it actually. It’s generally the same cost or a buck or two more depending on the weight. PLEASE WAIT UNTIL I SEND YOU A COMBINED SHIPPING INVOICE. WILL SEND YOU ONE WITH THE FULL SHIPPING PRICE FOR ALL THE ITEMS PURCHASED. IF YOU PAY BEFORE I SEND A COMBINED INVOICE, I MAY NOT NOTICE THAT YOU OVER PAID FOR SHIPPING. IF I DO NOTICE I WILL REFUND THE DIFFERENCE BUT PLEASE WAIT FOR THE COMBINED INVOICE TO SAVE A REFUND HASSLE FOR BOTH OF US. THANKS.
FYI: I always go to the USPS to mail the items so I always have a receipt/ proof that the items were mailed
I suggest to the winner to print a copy of this sale, it will increase the resale value of your purchase tremendously having this information as a hard copy along with the bank. You are paying for this information, make use of it! Plus it’s fun to look back in 20 years and say I only paid $200 for that way back when. Most of the banks today selling for $200-$400 were $15-$50 in the mid 1970’s, big money when the reference guides I have were printed.
