Electric Shock Machine Coin Op Penny Arcade Trade Stimulator Carnival Shocker For Sale
Please view all of the
photos of this machine. It’s SHOCKING!
Offering for sale this
vintage ELECTRICITY IS LIFE SHOCK MACHINE arcade game trade stimulator made by
the Mills Novelty Company, Chicago Illinois.
Based on company literature and other research I would date this machine
The machine is a fine
example of an unmolested original shocker. What is so great about this
particular specimen is that most of the ORIGINAL stenciling to the front of the
cabinet is all INTACT! Compare this
machine to the Mills shocker that recently sold here on (item 110999221606).
that machine is missing all of the stenciling.
That is because this stenciling is very fine and was typically worn off
during use or worn so much that operators would just re-paint the machine
during its service.
Mills Novelty shockers were
very popular during this period, as electricity was not as common (many homes
in rural areas did not yet have electricity) – and there was belief that
electricity even had therapeutic effects (hence the “Electricity is Life”
The machine is 100% complete
and untested. There is an old
(non-working) high power lantern battery still in place.
I also have a copy of a page
out of the Mills “Money Makers” catalog describing and picturing a shocker
machine. The way Mills Novelty
advertised and marketed these machines to operators was just great! The copy will be included in the sale.
The key (a newer
replacement) that operates the old original lock is also included.
The machine measurements are
11 X 9 X 7 inches.
I will box and ship this via
Priority Mail shipping to avoid risk of damage. US Buyers to pay $55. –
international buyers please inquire.
If you are in the greater
Los Angeles area you are welcome to come inspect the machine prior to offerding.
If you are the high buyer and would prefer to pick up the machine you can (no
charge of course).
Please ask any and all
questions prior to placing a offer – the machine is sold as-is. Review my recent response for similar vintage
coin op machines – 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 offered for sale.
