Take-Apart - The Money Box

The Money Box
The Money Box - Originals
Craftsman:John Berkeley

This puzzle was originally made from brass as shown in the bottom photograph. The objective is to remove a coin that has been inserted through the slot in the top. The box is made from two cylinders, one of which fits snuggly within the other. The inner cylinder has a slot that will allow the coin to slide out near the bottom. To remove the coin, the base is pulled downward, revealing the slot. This can be seen at the bottom left end of the opened original puzzle.
