An exceptionally nice tin still bank, this souvenir was offered by the American Can Company at Chicago's Century of Progress World Fair in 1933-1934. The base of the metal bank is marked Canco. The dark silver can is illustrated with colorful skyline images of the Chicago World's Fair.
One image on the bank is the iconic Federal Building. Its three fluted towers representing the three branches of government: executive, judicial and legislative. The image is often seen on posters advertising the 1933-34 World's Fair.
The bank is in very good condition with the exception of a couple of barely noticeable blemishes in the tin.
Dimensions: 3.5" high x 2.125" wide
Included with the bank are 3 Century of Progress post cards. The first post card is "The Lord's Last Supper" at the Hall Of Religion.
The second post card is a section of the Belgian Village.
The third post card is the Administration Building.
All the cards have very good clarity and contrast and are very sharp and clear.
The post cards are bumped at the corners and have some light creases. There is some discoloration due to age. There is no writing or postage marks on any of the post cards.
