Welcome to my web page! I have been a dealer of cast iron banks and toys for 35 years and look at every transaction as a investment in a long term relationship.  I am also very active in the mechanical bank collectors as follows: past president, long term member of the board of directors, hosted 5 conventions, active member of the pricing  guide committee and a active contributor to the "Mechanical Banker" { 3X/year news magazine}. I am also very active in the Still Bank Collectors of America and a long term contributing member of the Toy Collectors of America organizations.
