Upright golf ball vendor slot machine is an exceptionally rare piece of vintage Americana by O. Jennings & Company of Chicago. The 25-cent slot is in impeccable condition, complete with its original glass display front that depicts two golfers on the green. Floor model slot machines such as this are far rarer than their countertop-sized counterparts - such machines were only found in high-end golf resorts of the early and mid-20th century. What makes this machine all the rarer is that vendor slot machines such as this one were declared gambling devices in 1941 - just a year after the.
