found this book on the weekend at a thrift store here , never seen it before and don't collect penny banks although I do have 2 .

I googled the book and it seems to be really hard to find , it was self published by a collector of penny banks called " Graham Jones " Oakville Ontario in 2006 .

one came up as having sold at auction for over $100 , but the price on back is listed as $25 new , its around 140 pages mostly full colour with pictures/details of the banks featured

does anyone collect penny banks or heard of this book before , it only features banks made and used in Canada

Hi new member here. I collect banks as well and have several reference books on banks but not that one. I’d love to buy it from you if your selling?
