Vintage Booz Barometer Coin Op 5 Cent Sobriety Test Bar Top Game---works :
Up for sale is this Vintage 1950-60's used "Booz-Barometer" Coin Op 5-Cent Sobriety Test Bar Top Game.This game is in nice shape considering the age and the possible use that it has had. I hooked a 6 volt battery up to it and both lights turned on, and the bell does ring. The nickel does drop when there is contact made on the metal coil, but it still continues to buzz once the nickel has dropped (i'm assuming this is a wiring issue). The plastic barometer face behind the coil has two cracks in it (please look at the last 3 pictures). This will require that you detach the piece from the unit and glue the cracks and then possibly add some touch up paint or leave as-is. The entire unit has some minor surface rust throughout and some touch-ups will be needed here and there, as you can see from the pictures. The coin tray has some rust (especially in the one spot-see picture). The metal bar that holds the battery in place is still included. The coin mechanism works great. The lock has been drilled out and a new one will need to be installed, if you choose. As far as I can tell, everything looks to be original. The decals are in pretty good shape considering the age of the machine. It measures approximately 18" wide, 17" tall, and 5" deep (from the outside of the coil). I will package this item with plenty of bubble wrap and packing peanuts to insure that there will be no further damage to the game....Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have, or ask for more pictures. This unit is 50+ years old and is not brand new, please consider this when offerding! Thanks for looking!
