Finely Made Coin Pail: Ross Bertram Prototype by Morrissey: Highest of quality: please read

Winning Bid: $470.00

Someone was trying to duplicate the Bertram Coin Bucket. They came very close! This is the nicest coin bucket i have ever sold. It is very heavily plated and of fine quality. It is 6 inches tall. I don not know the maker. Two Coin croppers built into the base. Half dollar size. You will not be disappointed with this one. Appears to have seen little use if any.

Update from David Ben (magician, author, historian)  who was working for Morrissey at the time:

Herb Morrissey made the pail you are selling under a licensing agreement with Ross. (I was working for Herb at the time and also studying privately with Ross.) This is one of ten or twelve pails Herb made. The first half did not meet with Ross’s approval. Nor did the second lot. No more than 12 in total between the two production runs.  Herb and Ross parted ways over the pail. (Herb even had a booklet printed for the pail with photographs of Ross using it. All copies but my copy, already signed by Ross, I believe we’re destroyed.) Ross eventually had the pails made himself to his exacting specifications, of which approximately twenty were made. Herb’s rendition was probably the best metal product he ever made for market. (He also did two sets of Germain jars for me that were great.) Ross’ final product, to his credit, was that much better, however, than Herb’s.
Either way, the one you are offering for sale – made by Herb Morrissey- is lovely and quite rare.
