“Boxer” cast iron still bank is a re-issue of a bank by the same name and same casting made in the early 1900s by the Hubley Manufacturing Company. The original is documented in Andy Moore’s concise book on still banks called “The Penny Bank Book”; listed as item number 357. This example was made by The John Wright Company in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania in 1970. They purchased the copyrights from the Hubley Manufacturing Company and made this bank from the original pattern. It is quite collectible as such and is very well done and hand painted in accurate boxer like colors identical to the 1920’s version of brown with a red collar. The bank is in all original paint and in mint condition. It includes the original cardboard box. Made in U.S.A. It is very well cast; note the tight seem where the two halves meet. The slotted screw which would have been turned to separate the two halves to retrieve the coins has never been turned (see image)..
