ABOUT THIS SITE

This site has been created to share information, resources for research, and to stimulate interest in collecting cast iron safe banks made between 1865 and 1941.

While Mechanical Banks and some specific areas of Still Banks have been thoroughly researched and documented, the field of cast iron safe banks is wide-open with no main resource to find information on rarity, value, when they were made, or who made them.

Having collected still banks since 1978, and specializing in safe banks since 1996, I hope to apply my knowledge and experience within the hobby to encourage and educate others who have an interest in toy banks.
