    This slot has been in the family forever. I know it's a Superior Confection and I have seen a pic of one that is similar but not exact. This one is a penny slot and still works fine. It is missing one piece behind where you put the coin in on top of the machine. Looking for info on the machine (its not for sale) that I can put with it on the display case that I am building. I know some of the history of SC but there is not much that I can find out there. I forgot to add the glass covering the reels is missing also. I would like to fix that. You can see in the pics of the piece missing on the top.
    Thanks for any help

      Very nice trade stimulator. Did it hold gumballs in the two windows on the front right (and dispense from the opening? If you didn't know, this was a very popular way to "legally" get the stimulators into the bars,stores, etc. If the machine didn't pay out money, then the proprieter would simply pay the customer based on the payout listed in the top window. You missing piece is nothing more than a piece of metal that holds the coin mechanism in place (in the front) and held in the channel by the rear door. I do not have this specific machine, but about 6 very similar. Absolutely beautiful.

      The machine holds gumballs on the left side where you can see the lock plate. The machine pays out money but you get a gumball on every spin. I also have the money box (not in the pic). The money comes out the middle and the gumballs come out on the bottom left. I would like to remove the internals and replace broken glass. The center glass has all pennies, there is only one face out and its 1969. Is there a way to remove the jackpot manually? What is the best way to clean (dust) the internals. I know there is no manual and I don't want to screw anything up. Is there a model number for this machine? Thanks for the help so far.

      Most of mine, just have a few screws holding the actual mechanics in. Unscrew those and it should slide out. I would use a canister of air (like for computers), and blow the dust, etc. out. Lubricate the moving parts. It shouldn't be a big project. If for some reason you have to take the machine (mechanics) apart to replace the part, take some good pictures so you know where everything goes or else you will be looking for someone with an identical machine to help. Cant wait to see it all cleaned up.

      Do you know if there was anything covering the payout card?I will take tons of pics before I start the project. Thanks for your info. I would still like to know the exact name of the machine and to see if someone has one exactly like it. I also have a mills vest pocket that I may restore since they are not worth much but still fun to play.

      Your machine is known as a Superior Confection to coin op collectors. I have several pictures and information of the machine listed in my price guide. Email me directly at and I can forward you all the information from the book. It was manufactured in 1934.

      I'm the only living grandson of Gus Snyder, founder and owner of Superior Confection. If you want more information about him, the company or your machine, I'd be happy to help you.

      Anything you can tell me would be great.

      Snide 72 ... I have a special repair on a 5cent Mint slot machine and would like any info or schematics you could assist with ... thanks in advance/ Bigbear
    11. Snide72, 5 years ago
      Bigbear ... I don’t have any schematics and I’m pretty sure none exist. However, there are some very good restorers who might be able to help you. Gus died in 1938, 10 years before I was born. I never knew him and didn’t know he made slot machines and trade stimulators until 3 years ago when a guy called me out of the blue. He had traced my family’s burial records, etc. and found my name and number. He was looking for machines, parts, serial numbers or anything else related to Gus and Superior Confection. Needless to say, he was shocked to learn that at 66 years old, I never knew of Gus’s infamous activities! All I was ever told growing up was that he owned a candy manufacturing company and died of a ruptured appendix when he was 52. I learned for the first time 3 years ago that he died in a federal prison where he was serving time for tax evasion! Good luck.
