Imp Penny Slot "trade Stimulator" W/ Key Gumball Machine Estate Fresh Tobacciana For Sale
Vintage Tavern Trade Stimulator "IMP" Gumball Slot Machine - with Key - Estate Fresh -
This whimsical tavern "trade stimulator" comes to you estate fresh from an old Middlesex County, New Jersey home we recently liquidated (one of those types of houses where generations never threw anything away). Found boxed up and packed up inside the old basement bar, this lot has sat undisturbed for decades.
It measures 6-1/4” tall and is made of solid (and heavy!) metal. The machine is all original and never offered on the secondary market. There has been no attempt at refinishing. I’ll leave that up to you, the discerning and educated collector. I did a little bit of cleaning the old dust off. It has the key which opens the back without issue. As you can see it does have some age and use wear but, as you know, these machines are not really easy to come by especially right out of an old home.
Before you offer or buy please CLICK HERE to see my little movie demonstration of this baby in action (give it a moment to load). My apologies for less than Academy Award winning quality!
Structurally sound and, as you can see in the movie, it’s temperamental and more often than not prone to jams. I’m not certain why the pennies get jammed within but I’m sure you knowledgeable buyers can adjust it one, two, three (and no, you don’t get any pennies I put in!). Guts are nice nice w/ original cigarette pack wheel decals. All springs intact. I'm not an expert on items like this, so I've included several large images below for your grading needs. REMEMBER: This sale ends on Friday, June 14th, so don’t space out and forget about it.
This lot will certainly make a splendid addition to any vintage slot machine, gumball or tobacciana collection.
As with many of our Bay items, this lot is sold with s! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
