Hubley Cast Iron Monkey Mechanical Bank

- Morphy Auctions
Mechanical banks, including those made by Hubley, can sell in the hundreds of thousands when the right model in excellent condition comes on the market.

Because of the high value, as with Hubley's toys, reproductions have been introduced into the secondary marketplace. It’s wise to have Hubley mechanical banks (or any other you're considering for purchase) authenticated before paying a high price for them, or buy from a reputable dealer who will stand behind their claim of authenticity.

This cast iron Monkey mechanical bank dated to 1925 isn’t quite that rare, but it did bring in $2,300 at Morphy Auctions in September 2008.
