1913 Penny Arcade Coin Operated Stereoviewer / Stereoscope By Whiting For Sale

1913 Penny Arcade Coin Operated Stereoviewer / Stereoscope By Whiting

Rare and wonderful, original 1913 Cast Iron and Pressed Steel, Counter Top, Penny Arcade Machine known as "Whiting's Sculptoscope Coin Operated Stereo Viewer" manufactured by the American Novelty Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. This fantastic Arcade Machine measures approx. 14 1/2" tall and 11 1/2" by 7" at the base.


The front section of the base of the Machine is made of a heavy cast iron as is the mechanical "grip" that advances the stereoscopic views contained in the Viewer. The body of the machine is made of a heavy, pressed steel with frosted glass window inserts on the sides and top. The Machine is known as "Whiting's Miniature Museum Sculptoscope" and just as the introduction Card at the beginning of each 15 card set of scenes states, "Seeing is worth a hundred descriptions". The Stereoview Cards are from the turn the of the century. There are 6 different series of scenes with 15 cards per scene that can be seen if you drop a penny in the coin slot and pull the trigger each time you want the scene to change. The different scene sets are titled The American Indians; The New French Cook; See America First; Colonial Days; Comic Miscellaneous and an unnamed series depicting Classical Oil Paintings. .


This rare and fascinating, Cast Iron and Pressed Steel Coin Operated Arcade Stereoviewer is in very good condition - it contains what appears to be a complete set of 90 stereoview cards and the mechanism works but is sporadic and in need of some adjustment to work correctly and smoothly. There is some wear to the original, black surface paint but there are no cracks, chips, breaks, repairs or damage of any kind to the body parts. One of the two original, frosted glass panels is missing but we have arranged to have a replacement made for this panel and it will be in place before the machine is shipped to the buyer. The lock plate is unlocked and we do not have the original, simple key to open or lock the plate.


A very rare and wonderful early 20th century Penny Arcade Mechanical Coin Operated Stereoviewer Machine and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
