1950s Diner Penny 1c Arcade Iq Test Fortune Napkin Coin Op Machine Soda Fountain For Sale
Up for sale at is this vintage test your IQpenny arcade 1 cent coin operated napkin
holder. It includes a COMPLETE SET OF 500 UNUSED IQ TEST CARDS!
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 really clean mechanism. 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 F cards – There is a complete set of 500 New Old Stock cards in the machine.
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
