NOTES:
 
    These 1950's tin toy era coin banks were made by Ohio Art. The bank features a white regulation size tin baseball, atop of a red base that reads "WORLD CHAMPIONS" in large white letters. The inner base has the manufacture credit "Ohio Art Co," opposite "Made in U.S.A." The sweet spot on the lithographed red & blue stitched baseball reads "OFFICIAL, LEAGUE BALL" in blue lettering. With the coin slot at the top of the baseball, the coin release is located under the base, and the metal plug is often missing.

 One of the oldest toy makers in the United States, the Ohio Art Company is best known for its classic Etch A Sketch, drawing toy. Founded by Henry Simon Winzeler in 1908, the company produced oval metal frames. The onset of World War I in 1914 interrupted toy imports from Germany and afforded domestic toy makers the opportunity to fill the void. During this period, Ohio Art began making the lithographed metal toys, spinning tops, and drum sets. Ohio Art made parts for rockets, bombs, and aircraft throughout World War II, and its contributions earned an "Excellence" award at war's end.
