1950s Diner Penny 1c Arcade Iq Test Fortune Napkin Coin Op Machine Soda Fountain For Sale

1950s Diner Penny 1c Arcade Iq Test Fortune Napkin Coin Op Machine Soda Fountain

Up for sale at is this vintage test your IQpenny arcade 1 cent coin operated napkin holder.

When you insert a penny a paper ticket with a question appears. When you insert another penny the next ticket has the answer to the previous question….along with another question!

This is a fun novelty item that demonstrates the great ingenuity and Americana of the 1950s. While some versions of these countertop vendors issued fortunes, this IQ version required the patron to actually spend at least 2c to get both their question and answer. It’s a brilliant design!

We have had a few of these in the past few months- this one has a particularly nice and clean mechanism. There's a very slight bit of corrosion at the very bottom of the front plate - but it is really not very noticeable and does not detract from the overall aesthetic. Please look closely at all photos. The cabinet color is red.

There were several versions / editions of cards created for these machines. This particular machine has the SERIES H cards – There is an incomplete set of ~225-250 New Old Stock cards in the machine. (A starter card is shown in the photo - it vended perfectly when I put in a penny)

As with all vintage mechanical items, the machine may not always dispense a paper ticket- - sometimes they get hung up inside. But overall it’s a great vintage piece! I did try it with a penny and the first question popped right out!

This was made by the Continental Service & Equipment Company of Detroit Michigan a division of the Mercury Steel Corporation.

I will box and ship this via Priority Mail to avoid risk of damage. US Buyers to pay $19. – international buyers please inquire.

If you are in the greater Los Angeles area you are welcome to come inspect the machine prior to offerding. If you are the high buyer and would prefer to pick up the machine you can (no charge of course).

Please ask any and all questions prior to placing a offer – the machine is sold as-is. Review my recent response for similar vintage coin op machines – offer with confidence.

Have a look at my other sales – there are several nice examples of vending machines, trade stimulators and other penny arcade coin op machines offered for sale.
