This is a fairly large wooden heart bank in original red paint. It is carved out one piece of wood I think. There is evidence that a number of people over the years have tried to get into it and I don't think the succeeded but did manage to get the money out. The note fixed to the side says, Fred A Crossman Died 1862 4 years of age. The bank is a little over 4" by 4" by 2 3/3" tall. What a dear love token.
