Moon Rocket Coin Bank
We had a different idea of what a moon rocket should look like in 1950. My version is cast in aluminum & bronze. The nosecone folds back to reveal ONE little bronze spaceman who's included to go along for the ride. He lifts right out to be played with and also reveals a coin slot where you can put your savings toward buying another Nelles original.
Rocket : H 14" , W - 6" , 5 lbs
