Among the highlights is this Mikado bank measuring 7 x 5½ x 5½in (18 x 14 x 14cm) made by Kaiser and Rex of Frankford, Pennsylvania. If a coin is placed under the right-hand hat and the handle is cranked, a bell rings and the coin reappears under the left hat where it remains until another is deposited.

When the process is repeated for the second coin, the first is then deposited. This example, in a blue base variation, is in near-mint condition and comes with some British coins.

Estimate $80,000-120,000.
