    This my first post , i recently found this site and think it's great.Thank all of you for that!
    The picture is my Vendo 81 B from march 1956, it came out of Las Vegas in 1980 to the Nethetlands and was since then in a bar in Rotterdam , I bought it from the owner two years ago and stands in my living room since then.
    I have a question: Why does mine has no stickers, can it be because it was one of the early 81B's? I read about that they used old parts from the 81A in the early 81B's

    Regards Bart

    Rotterdam, Holland.

      Greetings Bart, your machine is a beaut.
      was it restored at some point?
      could be why no stickers.
      what part of Holland you in?

      I'm not aware any of the old Vendo's originally had stickers. I always think of those as having been applied post-manufacture. None of the guides show them with stickers.

      Very beautiful machine & a long ways from "home". I wonder how they ever used it there since the coins are different and prices would be different as well? Strange?
    8. supervalk supervalk, 9 years ago
      In Holland it was only a show piece in a bar.
      It still only works with us coins, you have to put in 1 x 10ct or 2 x 5ct for 1 bottle.
      Still works great!

      I have a partially restored Vendo 81B 10 cent Coke Machine that's been in my garage for 30 years. It still runs and has most of the parts (glass in door is missing but frame is intact). How could I tell what it's worth? Where would you suggest I sell it?

      We have a model 44 and it doesn't have stickers. That is a beautiful machine.

      Nice start on your collection now you need some signs to go with it. Be careful on Ebay with porcelain signs.FYI ... Stay away from signs from India.
