This fantastic bank measures about 12×12.  Another gift from fellow akitschionado Planet Joan.  I love that the artists name is on the bank too!  Mary Dorman is not a name I am familiar with.

    I have something SO similar. Does it look like the front was ever covered with vacuformed plastic by any chance? Doesn’t look like it in the photo but mine is the exact same graphic style but the cardboard has plastic windows over it.

    Graphics are so great.

    People were very excited to (successfully) save for the future in those days.

    The graphics are wonderful. So warm and fuzzy. The copyright in the bottom right corner give a date but I can’t make it out. What’s it made of?
