    Find: Banthrico Air Force Academy (possible) Ceramic Bank - Metal bottom

    I found this Banthrico Air Force Academy Bank at a garage sale today .. I've done some research, and cannot find another like it anywhere .. It is 6 inches tall, 4 1/4 inches wide and 3 inches deep .. It is a rich deep sky blue and very lustrous .. Every Banthrico Bank I've seen is Metal .. It may or may not be metal ( It's non-magnetic) ceramic? .. The bottom panel is metal, with the coin slot and lock keyhole .. It has the letters "AANB" above an eagle in a shield on the backside, along with the words "Air Academy National Bank" .. On the metal bottom it is stamped Banthrico Inc. Chicago USA .. The was no key ..This has got to be rare since I can't find another for sale, sold, or pictured anywhere, yet .. Any Input/Knowledge/Help of these banks is more than appreciated

    Not being rude, but it is ugly to me,... and if others felt that way, very few would have been sold?

    .. I imagine it was hard for the designers to make a Falcon wearing a helmet, holding a football look too pretty .. Dust, poor lighting and my cheap phone camera doesn't help the look .. Like they say, beauty is in the eye ...
