its a nationals brand cigarette machines there is 2 invoices in the machine which i believe dates it 1930's 1935, and the cigarette prices labeled in the machine match the prices for the era, its in very good condition a little rust not bad, and a few scratches but overall very good, i looked up the company who made it they were called rejectors inc from missouri which belive went bankrupt as i cant find any information besides they were sued alot leading me to belive this is probably a rarer machince, the only information i have got out of 30 ppl i have called one said he was said the minimum was 2500 for this machine but i would like to hear from more ppl and maybe find out some history of it

    I'm confused about this. The machine was made in the 30's? Used since the 30's?
    The prices and brands of cigarettes reflect the 60's. There were no camel lights, winston lights, vantage lights in the 30's.
    In 1964 i would go to the store for my grandpa with one dollar and a pop bottle, buy his cigarettes, a bottle of cola, and a candy bar and get change from the dollar. A pack was about 35 cents then. I think the 30's they were a dime or 15 cents.

    I have the same exact machine. Came out of a church hall a few years ago. I don't have a key though.

    From the style, I dont believe this is from the 30's. More like 50's to early 60's, especially the brands and prices. Cigarettes in '74-'75 were .50 cents a pack, that would put .35 cents a pack right about early - mid 60's. Nice machine though.
