Mechanical banks are the prime banks, but many are being reproduced. Watch out for fakes. I just collect what I like no matter the value (or lack of). Here some info:

What can I look for in a good bank?  Is it what is made out of, or the general theme of the bank (like Uncle Sam, or one the actually looks like a pig)?

An unmarked ceramic Christmas piggy bank about 8.5" tall with fake gems in the eyes and nose. It also has "eyelashes".

Some advertising Banks in my possession:

Eight O'Clock Coffee brand (this coffee is still available in stores). It's 3.75" tall, 2" wide and 1.5" deep and metallic. Some are for sale on Ebay  from $3 to $25 and claim to be anywhere from the 1930s to the 50s. Red seems to be the most available color, but they also came in black and yellow.

This was a give-away from an area store which has long been out of business. I remember going there as a kid, which is where I got it, so it must be from the late 50s or early 60s. It is molded styrene plastic and about 4.5" long. It cracked at one time and I tried to fix it with Scotch tape (this was before the non-yellowing tape).

This is a book bank from the 1920's.

Cast Iron still bank, about 4" tall. Likely a Hubley.

This cash register still bank belonged to my maternal grandfather. He was born around 1903 0r 1904, so if he had it as a kid, it's probably nearly a hundred years old. It looked like at one time he may have tried to get the money out of it and chipped it around the slot.
