There were special German tin coin registering banks (spardose or sparkasse) made with a lithographed KdF Wagen design on the sides that was produced by the German Toy Company of Michael Seidel or SEIDEL in the late 1930s. The mechanical bank would keep track of 5 and 10 Reichspfennig coin deposits into the bank (100 Reichspfennig = 1 Reichsmark). A 5 or 10 Reichspfennig coin was placed in the coin slot on top of the bank and the lever pushed forward. There was a window on the bank indicating the amount of coins that had been deposited. When 5 or 10 Reichsmarks were accumulated, the banks door blew open automatically and the coins tumbled out. With the coins gathered together, a KdF Wagen Savers stamp could then be purchased and placed in the KdF Sparkarte to eventually buy that KdF Wagen. These SEIDEL KdF era Spardose Banks are from the Rick Search collection.
