This is a plastic blow-molded bank featuring a gorilla–nowhere does it say it’s King Kong, but just look at that face! This bank stands at 11″tall and has no markings to determine its age or maker. A.J. Renzi produced larger versions of this bank in the 60′s and this one may have been produced alongside those, or it may be a more recent version.
Tomorrow’s post will feature this bank’s big brothers. Stay tuned!
“Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.” All month long, I will be showing off King Kong collectibles from my personal collection in a series called KONGTOBER, so if you’re a fan of King Kong and movie monsters, I think you’re going to like what you see.
