This vintage 1947 Mills Blue Bell Hi Top Nickel Slot Machine is just out of long time storage. It's in really nice, unmolested original condition with excellent original exterior two-tone blue hammer-tone paint, its original Mills back door with original Mills back door lock and key, and all original exterior and interior components including its original Mills cash box. There are no broken, cracked, chipped or repaired castings or other parts.The base has some tight glue joint separations that have no affect on stability or strength. The original chrome on the handle and coin tray are excellent. The original award card is still in nice condition too. The inside of the case still has all of its original drill plating and all of the glass is in good condition. Note the unusual Criss-Cross payout schedule. Three bars showing above or below the pay line or in a criss-cross pattern pays 18; three bars on the center line pays the jackpot plus twenty coins. One bar or one cherry pays two coins; two bars or two cherries or a cherry and a bar or a bar and a cherry pays 5 coins. This machine's internal mechanism is all there including its no cheat and security devices. The original reel strips are excellent. While the mechanism would benefit from cleaning, it is well lubricated and works and plays well every time, paying according to the payout schedule on the award card. The jackpot assembly is complete including the reserve. Hit a jackpot and the next play, as the main jackpot gate closes, the reserve jackpot opens, filling the main jackpot so it can pay two jackpots in a row if you get that lucky. The handle and pump assembly work properly as do all this machine's mechanical components.
The original reel strips are still very, very nice. Thanks for looking and God bless!
