Antique Penny Arcade Coin Op Strength Tester Grip Test Trade Stimulator Mancave For Sale

Antique Penny Arcade Coin Op Strength Tester Grip Test Trade Stimulator Mancave

Offering for sale at this vintage strength tester made by the Mercury Athletic Scale company.

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS ABOVE AND SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN AND WATCH THE VIDEO OF THIS MACHINE IN ACTION….IT IS TRULY GRIPPING!

MAS manufactured and sold these grip testers in the 1940s and 1950s – they were very popular in diners, stores, bars, dime-stores and penny arcades. They were VERY effective at making LOTS of money for their operators....one penny at a time!

The machine operates on 1c. Begin by pushing the button up near the coin slot to reset the counter to zero. Then – drop a coin in the slot, grab the handle, and SQUEEZE as tightly as you can!

If you advance the needle far enough a bell goes off to alert everyone around how strong you are!

The machine has listings on the label to indicate how much of a grip you should have based on age. There are different listings for Men and Women.

This particular machine has been tastefully restored and is in 100% working order.

The outside case has been repainted with a red enamel base and blue gloss finish. The label inside is a perfect reproduction of the original that presents very well.

The original wooden base is sold and intact and has several coats of shellac for protection. It has a high quality reproduction metal instruction plate on the front encouraging you to TEST YOUR STRENGTH DAILY!

Ready for a mancave or gameroom – this is a fun addition to any coin-op collection.

Note that the metal grip on this machine is a PERFECT REPRODUCTION of the original - - having been cast in high quality aluminum. The original grips were cast in POT METAL - and are prone to cracking and breakage. This new grip will deliver years of enjoyment!

Has original steel back door with newer lock/keys.

I can ship this item – it will be packed carefully - shipping in the US will be $55 as it is heavy and required oversized boxing to protect the front casting.

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 vending machines, trade stimulators and other penny arcade coin op machines now and coming over the next several weeks.
