I have owned this bank for 5 years myself. Antique old Pat date Feb 2 1888 on the removable piece where the coins go under neath the cart.
Made by the J and E Stevens Cromwell CT. As shown there is missing paint all over.
The bank works as it should push the side lever and the cart goes up and shoots the coin in. All is there as should be. The bank measures 9 1/2 inches long. The little man measures 2 1/2 inches tall. The donkey measures 5 inches long.
Great bank for display or for the collector. Any questions please feel free to ask. The item "Antique Cast Iron J and E Stevens Bad Accident Black Americana Mechanical Bank" is in sale since Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
