    Found this old candy machine years ago. I found this eBay auction which appears to be for a similar machine.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Atlas-Master-Gumball-Candy-Penny-Nickel-Machine-Pat-No-2846122-2784827-/140679321077?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20c12415f5

    They have it listed as an Atlas Master Penny Nickel machine. I have previously set the machine to turn and dispense freely without having to pay anything (my kids like it better that way!)
    Anyone have any info on this item? I am considering restoring the case, but considering I havent really cleaned it up I think it looks pretty good.

      I have one similar, original white paint showing lots of wear. I plan to paint it soon. It has the penny/nickel coin mechanism, 1 turn for a penny, 5 turns for a nickel. I leave the coin mechanism and fill them with candy. My grandchildren enjoy them, though I don't always make them pay. I often have change in my pockets, especially when I know they're coming.
