According to Dick Bueschel, this three-reel counter top trade stimulator was one of a variety of “baby bell” cast aluminum trade stims produced in the 20s and 30s.
The machine works as it should. It vends gum with each play. Reel strips are reproductions – with the printing being a bit fuzzy – making the reading of the fortune portion a bit challenging. The front fortune card is faded and has some staining – it is readable but could be replaced. There is no glass currently over the card.
The lower window houses gumballs that are old and faded.
Overall a machine that presents okay as-is or can be a great candidate for full restoration.
