    You guys always seem to find the stuff I can't and very easily. I figured I would be fine buying this blind. Hey, it's an old gumball machine. I am guessing from the 20s maybe 30s. I can't get the top off. The globe seems stuck to the rubber seal even if I did. Pretty Cool machine with really beautiful swirls in the globe. Help me with some info if ya don't mind. Thanks in advance.

      Considering I have over 5000 of them, really not much time to love anyone else. Thanks for the troll though.

      Ha nutsabotas6, I didn't notice that until you pointed it out, pretty funny!

      I found the machine. And yes, I love it.

      Bluebird Products Co., Kansas City, MO, c. 1915, 16 1/2". This is an all-aluminum machine, as were most Bluebirds, and vended a handful of nuts or candy for a penny.

      They're pretty reliable, but the coin slot is tight and sometimes doesn't accept modern pennies, which tend to be slightly thicker than are older pennies.

      Therefore, this machine would not be appropriate for a modern vending route.

      I can polish and place the correct decal on it, or buy it if it is for sale.
