Original Black Americana Cast Iron Spice A Mule Jockey Over Mechanical Bank:
This is a nice, antique original J&E Stevens I ALWAYS DID 'SPISE A MULE jockey over version mechanical bank, circa 1879. I acquired this from an old bank collectors estate & this has been well cared for as you can see - it does have some paint wear over the years, but also retains that "worn in" patina & displays very nice - this operates perfect; you place a coin in the jockeys mouth, press the lever behind the mules rear hoof & the jockey gets bucked off, bonking his head on the log, sending the coin into the slot - real nice - the top of base reads I ALWAYS DID 'SPISE A MULE - bottom of bank is stamped PATD APR 22d 1879. - the only flaw I see is this is missing the coin holder cap on the bottom - the coin shown in pictures is not included in this sale - I WILL SHIP TO USA ADDRESS ONLY - Secured & well packaged shipping is $20 to lower 48 states. - low starting price, with absolutely & no "buy it now". I will be unavailable for questions April 26-28, so please ask any questions before or after those dates. Thanks for looking & good luck if you decide to offer!
