    Default French 'safe-style' moneybox

    No need for great excitement ... .
    This is made of steel sheet just over 1mm thick, spot welded and painted. The lock is a basic 5-wafer cam lock with convenience key. (What we often called a disk tumbler lock in the past, before we met Abloy locks.) It even has a keycode stamped on the face. The pivoted back edge of the door is inside the door opening when closed, acting as a continuous dogbolt. The style resembles early-20c French safes in having a base and cap.

    Many of the other toy moneyboxes are tinplate, crimped or fixed together with folded tabs. Locks are often springlatches using a standard key or a back-action lock, often with no wards.
