The next two
photos above give you a great idea of the overall very nice original
condition this machine is in. All of the original paint is still on
the castings. The blue, red and whites still have a nice deep color
to them. The front castings are free of any cracks or breaks as
casting around the reel window was originally chrome platted and is
made of cast iron. The upper castings and lower castings are made of
cast aluminum. The original chrome on the center casting is in fair
condition but does show wear from years of use.
All of the
glass on the machine is in great original condition. The original
award plate is in fine original condition as well. The oak cabinet
on the machine is in great condition with the original Jennings logo
still present on the handle side. The right front edge and back
right edge of the oak base does have a small mounting hole in in.
"light bulb" handle is present and is also in great condition. The
Master Chief top sign and 10c badge are present and in great
original condition as well!
series of photos show the back and inside of the machine. The
original back door is present with embossed OD Jennings logo in the
center. Inside the machine the original cash box is present and in
great condition. The back bonnet is complete with the exception of
one missing right latch. The latch is gone as it appears the two
pieces of aluminum that the mounting latch screws go into is gone.
Regardless, the left latch is present and the bonnet locks onto the
cabinet just fine.
All of the
original hardware is present inside the cabinet. The handle has been
lubricated as well as the handle pump. The photo directly above also
shows the slug detection mechanism inside the machine. Jennings also
lined the inside of this machine with drill proof plating - which is
fairly unusual for this company!
The next two
photos above show the two locations of the serial numbers. This
machines number of 141514 dates it to 1940. The inside of the
cabinet retains some of the original inspection tag. What's
remaining of the tag shows almost all of the serial number. On the
back edge of the mechanism is also the same serial number. This
proves that the mechanism started out with this cabinet from the
last two photos show the mechanism out of the cabinet. As you can
see, the mechanism is in excellent condition. We have given it a
full tune-up and testing and it works great. The original factory
reel strips are still present and look very nice. The jackpot dumps
just as it should and payouts are accurate within 1.
If you have been looking
for a really neat and fun antique slot machine, this one should
really be considered. The Master Chief has a great back story as to
why it was developed. Since they were not made for long, probably
only a few months, very few appear on the market now. Here is a
chance to own an untouched original in perfect working order!
