Trick Dog

This is one of the rarest mechanical bank cards; fewer than ten examples are known to exist in ANY condition. Oddly enough, the bank itself is relatively common, and in fact today the Trick Dog trade card is more valuable than the bank it advertised!

It's really a shame that this card, issued in 1888, is unsigned. It has much in common with the Mason and Picture Gallery cards printed by G. H. Dunston, though, so this may actually be an unsigned Dunston effort. It's shown here at 85 percent of full size.
