My wife decided to give me my other Christmas present today. This is from 1937 and works very quietly and perfectly. It takes pennies, nickles and dimes. The window (in the second pic)on the side showed the store keeper what type of coin was dropped in the slot so there would be no cheatin. After you pulled the handle down, it would drop the coin (in the window) in the bottom of the machine, ready for another try. This "Trade" gives you a gumball with every coin played. I had to get all the old gumballs out of it cause they were in there for a while and then cleaned the compartment and added new gum. The old gum was not letting the machine drop gum properly so that made it run like new once replaced. The inside is very clean overall so no problems there. The plate on the front would show you how many different ways to win. This one would've been used for winning smokes as well but the reels are more the traditional fruit display.
