Rare First National Bank Of Monongahela City Collectable For Sale On Ebay

Up for sale on eBay is a rare memento from the First National Bank Of Monongahela City. I wonder if it was a premium given away to people for doing business with the bank. This would be a great item to purchase and donate to the Monongahela Historical Society! The eBay ad reads:

This Antique Brass Clip has a great patina. It measures 2 1/2 inches across and a little over 2 1/2 inches from top to bottom. On the front it reads “The First National Bank of Monongahela City, PA.” On the back it was stamped “Premier Metal Etching Co., Advertising Signs & Novelties/Long Island City, N.Y

Here is an old ad for the bank:

Monongahela City Postcard 1930's
From Monongahela City Postcard 1930's

The First National Bank Of Monongahela City was located at 318 West Main Street in Monongahela where First Niagra Bank is located today. I believe the building on the right in the postcard image above is the First National Bank of Monongahela building as it appeared in the 1930’s.

[Update 10.4.2011] This FNBMC clip sold for $67 on ebay!

    Neat how this survived. Is there any information on the history of the bank?

    FNBMC -> Western Pennsylvania National Bank -> Equibank -> Integra -> National City -> First Niagra. At least that’s how I think it goes.
