I think this is a repro of an early gum machine, it works perfectly after a little cleaning and oiling. These were made by the Jolly Good Co. in the 80s I think. The thought I had, was to buy it cheap so I could take an opportunity to take one apart and see how to fix it. The keys were included so I bought it! Took it completely apart and tweaked a few parts and I thought I had it in good working order. Bought some Doublemint and Spearmint gum and the rest is history! I like having a machine that only takes a penny. Plus my basement smells awesome now. A penny does buy something at my house, a whole lotta fun for $50!
You put a penny in front of the desired flavor and turn the knob to the right and it slides the piece of gum out the bottom. If anyone has an original of this machine, I would love to see it.
