An anonymous owner is selling an old, book-shaped New York Life Insurance Company bank calendar on the eBay Inc. auction site.[@@]

The “book” has a leather cover and brass pages.

The title is “Time Flies: Prepare For To-Morrow,” and an advertising label promotes a New York Life branch in Newark, N.J. A mechanism displays the month and date on the cover. The bank encourages regular saving by requiring the user to insert a coin each day to advance the date.

At press time, 5 potential buyers had submitted bids for the bank, and the current bid was $31. The auction will end shortly after 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time July 1.
