Vintage 1950’s Shawnee Ceramic Howdy Doody Piggy Bank

This 1950's Shawnee Ceramic Howdy Doody Piggy Bank measures 7" high and 5". It is in nice overall condition, but it does have a chip under the pig's mouth (this isn't visible when displayed because of its location). These types of banks are somewhat hard to find because they don't have a stopper on the bottom; you were supposed to break them with a hammer when they were full (this one only has a few pennies in it, but a couple of 'em are wheat pennies from what I can see with my flashlight…………Yeah, I'm throwing those in with the bank)
