Buffalo Savings / M&T Bank Coin Bank Collection

Recently, I wrote about a visit to Buffalo, N.Y. and some interesting architecture there. While at the M&T Bank building, formerly the Buffalo Savings Bank, I saw an exhibit of antique coin and mechanical banks. I took photos of those that had an architectural theme. Banks on display included: Organ Grinder and Dancing Bear, Wireless bank, Novelty Bank, Panorama Bank, Statue of Liberty bank, and a Lighthouse cast iron bank. The Mechanical Bank Collectors of America (MBCA) is a good resource for these types of cast iron banks. Previously, I wrote about the architecture and souvenir replicas of the Buffalo Savings Bank.
