This is a 1946 Mills Trade Stimulator Mint Vendor. One of the first to have electircal components added. Every 5 cent pull would unlock a knob that would dispense a roll of Vends Mints, and would also activate the game where you could win free plays which would calculate and light up the front lights displaying free plays. Many contacts and wires were added to the original Mills mech to make this work like an early arcade game with the electronic "guts" in the steel cabinet below. Interesting early game, and very rare in this format.
