MECHANICAL STRATO BANK PAIR FROM 1950′S, DURO MOLD MFG. Picture(s) and Description:
Pair of Strato Mechanical Rocket Ship Banks Please look carefully at the photos, and read all of the following information before bidding. These mechanical banks were used as a premiums by banks from all over the country in the 1950's. This pair is from two different banks, there are remnants of decals on both as the photos show. The bank that's in front in the first photo is in better shape than the other. It had a decal on both sides, and there's enough information left to know that it was given out by the First National Bank of Crown Point, Indiana. It is missing the bottom plate, but it has much more of the original paint left than the other, and works mechanically a bit smoother. The bank in the back of the first photo was given out by the Elmhurst National Bank in Elmhurst Illinois. It is not in the best of condition, the globe has a dirty appearance, and I don't know how well this will clean up. The left side of the rocket has a yellowish tone, and the other side (not shown) is similar in appearance to the globe. It works mechanically, but could probably benefit from a shot of WD-40 on the sliding part. It too is missing the bottom plate. These two old mechanical banks are obviously worth more than the very low opening bid, and are being sold with no reserve.
