As a kid, I always had a moneybox on the go, somewhere to drop the odd sixpence or threepenny bit into. These days cash slips through my fingers before I even knew it was there. One of the biggest drains on my dosh is ebay. However, it can be an absolute delight sometimes to pick up a real bargain. One such item is this wonderful Duramold 'Shoot the Moon' Rocket Bank.
Metal with a gold finish, its an impressive 10 or so inches high, the rocket has a spring loaded mechanism that shoots pennies into the Moon via a slot underneath. It's been through the wars and is missing a small hatch at the back and has lost a lot of plating and would originally have had a circular ring around the moon like this complete silver example below, but for 99p who cares!
