Snow White Dime Banks by Behrend & Rothschild
Dwarfs graphics appear on all four sides with bank instructions on the bottom.
Once the first dime is inserted into the bank, the back slide-open door locks. When the bank has registered the insertion of $5.00 worth of dimes, the door unlocks and allows access to the coins.
An ad in the April 1938 Playthings toy trade journal.
A Dopey dime register bank was produced the following year. It pretty much has identical measurements and functions as the Snow White bank, though the copyright markings differ, "©1939 Walt Disney Productions."
Each of the four sides features a slightly different Dopey image.
