Hart Co., Detroit, MI, a quarter is staged on tray inside rear of bank, penny is dropped into front slot where it magically changes to a quarter, pulling lever completes deposit. | Provenance: The Schroeder Collection. | Japanned finish on trap doesn't directly match that of the baseplate but we feel it is authentic, overall (Near Mint Condition). | $25,000 - $35,000
