Crown Bank Q: I have a cast-iron bank that has been in my family for over a hundred years. Can you tell me something about it?

A: Your bank is called the Crown Bank building. It was made in three sizes by both J. & E. Stevens (from 1873-1907) and the Grey Iron Casting Co. (from 1903-1928) and was painted in various colors. The largest version, 5 inches high, sold for $700 last year.
