Chicken Delight Bank

DEAR MIKE,

I have a rubber Chicken Delight bank I got back in the 1960s. I had it at my yard sale a few weeks ago and a person told me I should not sell it, as it is very valuable. He mentioned it could sell for $100.

It is six inches high (15 centimetres) and in very nice condition.

-- Brenda C., Winnipeg

DEAR BRENDA,

Your Chicken Delight bank is an advertising character mascot. Any character figures advertising a specific product are very collectible.

The irony of your bank is that it is a chicken serving a plate of chicken.

In the mid-1990s, prior to the days of online auctions, these banks sold for more than $100 each. Since those days, many have been put up for sale and the price has come down substantially. Today a bank in perfect condition would sell for $30 to $40.
