Duro Mold Strato Bank Signed Apollo Astronaut Charlie Duke   Duro Mold Strato Bank Signed Apollo Astronaut Charlie Duke
For your consideration is an artifact from America's Space Race era.. Manufactured by Duro Mold & Mfg in East Detroit in the early 1950's, this Strato Bank had been signed by Apollo 16 Lunar Modular Pilot Astronaut Charlie Duke in Cape Canaveral during a show sponsored annually by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.

Comes with original key and complimentary magazine featuring these intriguing and historically significant artifacts. I cannot currently locate the picture of Charlie and the signed bank (upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 and still trying to find things,) so I'm including the flyer for the 2012 Show in which the bank was signed.

This specimen is in excellent over-all condition, as the pictures show. It does have a slight patina to it, with various minuscule marks here and there.

It does work as designed, but not recommended to use due to its age. Both labels are at least 95% and read. Serious offers will be appreciated and considered. These stickers say "United States" and Bicentennial. The spray painted banks are a dull silver, not the shiny silver chrome (mirror finish) of the original finish.

I've seen painted over Flying Saucer Banks, Satellite Banks, Guided Missile Banks and Mercury Rocket Banks. He currently has a Mercury bank which had been painted over 3/27.

The common finishes applied were of a gray or (rarer, green) lacquer , not latex or acrylic, etc. There are different shades of gray through the years produced, as batches have varied. The scarcer silver chromed specimens were, of course, a different process. Still, no latex or acrylic paint.

Silver specimens should reflect light and images like a mirror. Any other banks claiming to be silver had been painted over.
