1920s-1930s Hookless Zipper money bag

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281687478268
Made between 1928 and 1932, this vintage bank bag bears the stamp of the Seaside Trust Company, located in Margate, New Jersey, just down the boardwalk from Atlantic City and home to Lucy the Elephant. The bag bears a transitional double marked Hookless + Talon zipper, only produced from 1928 to 1932. There is a snap, marked YEO (presumably the manufacturer of the bank bag), through the hole of the zipper pull.

1910s / 1920s straw hat

This one is ancient and unusual. It’s not a panama, but it’s similar. I’m not sure the country of origin of the straw. Marked Genuine Madagascar, but knowing the old straw names, that could mean anything. Stitched crown with taped seams. White sweatband with nouveau markings. Sold by M.E. Blatt – Importer – Boardwalk Atlantic City, NJ.
