Antique Late 20's Puritan Baby Vendor Gum Ball Trade Stimulator (slot Machine) For Sale

Antique Late 20's Puritan Baby Vendor Gum Ball Trade Stimulator (slot Machine)

UP FOR sale HERE IS A VERY CLEAN ALL ORIGINAL UNRESTORED LATE 1920's PURITAN BABY GUM BALL VENDOR, COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL AWARD CARD AND ORIGINAL REEL STRIPS DESIGNATING THE FORTUNE TELLING OPTION OF THIS MACHINE.

ALL ORIGINAL MECHANISM AND CAST ALUMINUM CABINET AS PERFECT AS THE DAY IT CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH NO CHIPS NO CRACKS.

AND YES,IT HAS THE PATINA THAT WOULD BE EXPECTED FROM A MACHINE OF THIS TYPE THAT WAS ORIGINALLY MANUFACTURED IN THE LATE 1920'S, HECK, IT IS 83 YEARS OLD, RIGHT? BUT AS IT WAS HIDDEN AWAY FOR MANY YEARS PRIOR TO MY FINDING IT, IT IS IN PRISTENE CONDITION FOR ITS AGE.

KEEP IT THIS WAY AS IT WOULD SHOW VERY WELL AND ADD IT TO YOUR COLLECTION OR WITH A LITTLE BUFFING OF THE ALUMINUM AND SOME PAINT RETOUCHING IT WOULD LOOK FACTORY FRESH AS THEY ORIGINALLY CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH THE CASTINGBUFFED ONLY AND HAVING PAINTED HIGHLIGHTS IN SPECIFIC AREAS.

THERE IS PAINT LEFT IN THESE SPECIFICAREAS SHOWING THE COLOR AND LOCATION IF YOU WANT TO HAVE IT AS IT WOULD HAVE COME FROM THE FACTORY.

IT HAS BEEN IN MY COLLECTION FOR MANY YEARS AND I WAS TEMPTED TO GOTHE FULL RESTORATIONROUTE WITH IT BUT OTHER COLLECTOR FRIENDS TOLD ME IT LOOKS BETTER AS IT IS, ALL ORIGINAL.

YOUR DECISION AS THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL MACHINE TO DO WITH AS YOU WOULD LIKE!

COLORED MARBLES ARE IN PLACE OF THE GUM BALLS FOR DISPLAY AND COULDBE LEFT THAT WAY BUT WITH THE ADDITION OF A SMALL FLAT RAMP YOU COULD HAVE IT AGAIN WORK WITH GUMBALLS, AGAIN YOUR CHOICE!

THE GUM BALLS WOULD HAVE BEEN LOADED ON THE BACK DOOR, UP AND TO THE RIGHT AS SEEN IN THE PICTURE OF THE BACK DOOR AND RETRIEVED IN THE FRONT BY PRESSING DOWN THE TAB ON THE LOWER LEFT FRONT CASTING!

THE FORTUNE TELLING OPTION AND THE GUMBALL OPTION WASOFFERED TO COVER THE FACT THAT THE MACHINE WAS ACTUALLY USED FOR GAMBLING.

THESE MACHINES WERE USED IN LOCATIONS LIKE DRUG STORES, BARS, ETC. AND THE LOCATION WOULD PAY THE WINNINGS. THE LOCATION OPERATOR WOULD LOOK IN THE SMALL WINDOW BELOW THE HANDLE AND VERIFY THE COIN PLAYED AND PAYOUT THE AWARD THAT THE LOCATION OPERATOR WOULD HAVE PLACED PROBABLY ON A SMALL CARD ADJACENT TO THE MACHINE, THIS WAS TO GET AROUND THE ANTI-GAMBLING LAWS AT THAT TIME.

THE MACHINE BEING SMALL AND LIGHT, IT COULD BE REMOVED WHEN THE "COPPERS" CAME IN, IT MEASURES 10 1/2 INCHES TALL BY 9 INCHES DEEP AS WELL AS 9 INCHES WIDE, SO THEY COULD BE EASILY HIDDEN AWAY ON A GAMBLING RAID!

THIS WAS A VERY RARE FIND WHEN I LOCATED IT BUT IT IS NOW TIME TO PASS IT ON TO SOMEONE WHO WILL LOVE IT AND ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I HAVE.

NOW TO PLEASE THE POWERS THAT BE, I MUST MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT, CAPESH?

HERE'S THE SMALL PRINT:

DUE TO LAWS REGULATING THE SALE OF ANTIQUE SLOT MACHINES, I, AS THE SELLER, WILL NOT ACCEPT offerS FROM MEMBERS IN THE STATES OF ALABAMA, CONNECTICUT, HAWAII, INDIANA, NEBRASKA, SOUTH CAROLINA AND TENNESSEE, CAPITO?

offerS FROM MEMBERS RESIDING IN ANY OF THESE STATES WILL BE WACKED!

THIS MACHINE IS OVER 25 YEARS OLD, BY A WHOLE BUNCH!!!!

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND
