    1930s they had a "worth a nickel" ad campaign, suspect this piece was late 30s or early 40s? just a guess and I have no idea of the value. Curious where and how you found it and how much you had to give for it...very nice

    I agree with TGBWC its a 1950's canadian VMC-33 machine 6cents is what coca cola sold for in Canada during the 1950's. i have a canadian display rack were you could get 6 bottles for 36 cents, it was also made during the 1950's.

    Thank you all for the information. As far as working and cooling I can't say for sure but I remember when my dad got this back around 1976 it worked because he used to put little bottles in it and give me money to use it. since then he moved to Washington State and I think it has basiclly traveled from garage to garage. can't really say if anything has ever been done with it. As far as where he got it and how much I can't say for sure. I think it got it from some sort of flea market antique show in town. It was what got him interested in collecting coke stuff. I don't see myself selling it as much as passing it on down through the family. It has a lot of memories attached. Just kind of courious about it's origin but couldn't find anything online about it. My dad always thought it was a canadian machine because of the 6 cents but not sure if he ever really knew. Thank you all for the helpful information.

    Saw a ton of them (literally) in every service station along Rt 66 in the 50's...until the Cuban sugar embargo made the price go up to .25 cents instead. Were good days!

    Great looking machine. I sold a similar 5 cent machine at local (Ft. Worth, TX) auction about five years ago and it brought $970 US.
