“More Money For Your Money” (Emigrant Savings Bank)
Emigrant Savings Bank started in 1850 and is New York's oldest savings bank. "More Money For Your Money" is its not-too-well-advertised slogan.

http://www.emigrant.com/aboutus.shtml
Emigrant Savings Bank, founded in 1850, is the oldest savings bank in New York City. The Bank was established by immigrants for immigrants. Emigrant has a long and rich history with its customers and is committed to keeping pace with their needs and providing the best possible service. We continually explore new technologies and product enhancements that will provide added value.

With assets of nearly $12.5 billion, Emigrant has grown to be one of the leading retail financial institutions in the New York metropolitan area, servicing the banking needs of our customers with 36 branches throughout Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Long Island and Westchester. Other core businesses include various lending subsidiaries that cover residential mortgages, mixed use, multi-family loans and commercial real estate.

4 April 1972. New York Times, pg. 37 ad:
