My uncle purchase a do-nut shop building in 1969 to house his antique store. It came with the complete working do-nut making machine, display, and utensils. He simply unplugged it and it sat in the store for over 40 years. the original cooking grease is still in it (which has helped preserve it).
Right after WWII, Doughnut Corp of America sold many of these machines to service men who started their own businesses. They were a huge hit. One of the images shows a book that was printed as promotional for the machines/stores. One of the images shows what a do-nut store looked like at that time.
I feel this machine a piece of American history. I would like to know the value. Also, are these collectible?
