Griswold Wheel Of Fortune Trade Stimulator Circa 1893-1905 With Key For Sale
Welcome to Olivetree Artifacts
Manufactured at the turn of the century in Rock Island, Illinois ( circa 1893-1905 ),
the Griswold Wheel of Fortune Trade Stimulator was used to win cigars through the process of chance.
( and whatever else was worth taking a chance on )
Our research shows that a person would insert 5 cents into the slot and hope to land on one of the six stars in the number range 1 to30.
One cigar for landing on the stars between 1 and 10,
2 cigars for landing on the stars between 11 and 20 and
3 cigars for landing on the stars between 21 and 30.
The game, based on roulette, was an avenue or loopholeof getting around gambling laws present at the time.
