This is an antique Cast Iron Bank, Black Man about 7" tall. It has the words "GIVE ME A PENNY" on the front of him. He has only one shoe and his toes stick out of his sock. The coin slot is on the back and he is all black on the back. It has a screw that holds the two piece bank together. I think it is the original paint on it, because it looks like the paint is baked on it. It is a nice piece and a collectable. I have 2 other cast iron banks for sale, so take a look if you collect cast iron banks.
