Old Esco Coin Op 1c Penny Arcade Game Trade Stimulator Fortune Teller Machine For Sale

Old Esco Coin Op 1c Penny Arcade Game Trade Stimulator Fortune Teller Machine

Offering for sale at an Antique 1c Coin Operated penny arcade machine made by Exhibit Supply Company (ESCO) circa 1930s. The machine offers whimsical answers to that age-old question: HOW DO YOU IMPRESS PEOPLE?

BE SURE TO LOOK AT ALL PHOTOS AND SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH THE YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE MACHINE IN ACTION

Exhibit Supply was probably the largest maker of countertop machines; part of the reason for this was their carnival and traveling show market. These people were on the move, and compact money making machines were exactly what they needed.

These counter-top games were intended to give a bit of fun and whimsy during the Great Depression are a lot of fun to play. You simply drop a penny in the slot and squeeze the handle. One of the bulbs on the backboard corresponding to a title is illuminated – showing the patron “HOW THEY IMPRESS PEOPLE”.

These early machines are predecessors to the later ESCO personality meters that have a backglass and an electric motor. The design of these is quite elegant – and the wood cabinets are very nice given they were intended to be commodity amusement devices.

Condition-wise the machine displays nicely. The cabinet and the mechanism are all original. They were restored - with the work being very well executed. The chrome on the handles and the 1c coin drop is superb. The top marquee sign is wood with a color image attached and lacquered. It is not old – but it looks old – and shows very nicely and is an excellent complement to the machine.

The back door is old and original – it is fitted with a newer lock and keys.

While these are not rare, finding one that has the original grip handles and 1c coin entry is a nice treat. If you have seen some of the recent ESCO machines sold here on you may have noticed that they were converted to coin slide machines. It’s great that this machine is original. The machine works on 110v power – there is a newer transformer that works reliably. Originally this would have been powered by a dry-cell battery.

The machine will be packed carefully - shipping in the US will be $55.

I can arrange delivery in the greater Southern California or Central Valley for anegotiable fee.LOCAL PICKUP ISAVAILABLE IN the greater Pasadena, CA area and this is PREFERRED.

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

Have a look at my other sales – there are several nice examples of other penny arcade coin op machines now and coming over the next several weeks.
