For sale wih : a vintage 1935 Buckley Manufacturing Co. Ball-Gum 1Cent slot machine "trade stimulator"working perfectly well. Beautifully embossed aluminum on front, sides & top.It measures 12.5" high x 9" x 9". Top reads " Ball Gum 1 Cent" as shown in pic # 4. Trade stimulator with three spinning reels. Other than the back panel totally missing, and a 1" x .3/4"chip in the middle of the on the left bottom base as shown in pic, slot machine is in excellent unrestored original condition. Again the machinery is impeccable with no rust. It should only be cleaned and lubricated to have it work perfectly. One fortune reads "A girl of sixteen will soon enter your life". This is how the "trade stimulator" was used for gambling: The player deposits the penny & pulls the lever. After the wheels stop, he looks at up the result on the card mounted on the front of the machine. Notice that all the fortunes have a fraction associated with them (ie. one-half, one-eighth, etc.) The bartender would pay the player his winnings from the cash register, based on the fraction. (Or, if law enforcement persons were nearby, he would just keep the gumball.)
