DescriptionPlastic piggy bank in the shape of the moon. The globe sits on a cream-colored plastic stand. The moon is gold and covered in plastic. Half of the plastic covering the moon is dark brown, and the other half is orange. There is a vertical slot in the plastic, but it doesn’t go through the moon. Around the equator of the moon, there is a cream-colored plastic band. Printed on this in black, it says, “The First National Bank in Albuquerque.” There is a key hole on the underside.
