Robot Bank

1974 ? Banthrico Inc. Made In Chicago , Illinois (USA)

Click on any of the photos below for full size image :

This cast metal Robot coin bank was most likely a premium given away by companies or banking institutions when a new account was opened . This bank was made by a Chicago based company called Banthrico which was in business from 1931 - 1985 .

Approximate Size :  6 1/2 " x  3 1/2 " x  2 1/2 "

This bank was given away at a American National Bank in Riverton , Wyoming but they can be found with other bank /city / state stamps .

The bank shown above doesn't seem to actually have a date on it but found this photo that shows one that is stamped 1974 …

So the bizarre thing is , all the research I have done so far , indicates that these robot banks were made in 1974 - well before Star Wars was released .

It may just be a coincidence but it's pretty hard to deny that it looks like R2-D2 wearing a Darth Vader helmet  vader  

The pattern on top of the head is particularly eerie to me  Wink

Could R2 have been inspired by this weird little bank  r2

James. It must weigh a good bit, if it's cast?

It definitely is quite a coincidence. Maybe McQuarrie had one?
