The SWEEPSTAKE Chief was Jennings version of a GOLD AWARD slot machine, and its Rare as very few show up for sale. This particular slot machine is a 5 Cent machine.
This Jennings Sweepstake Chief is the EARLY version (1949/1950) and has the smaller jackpot window in the'silo', the later version (1951 and later) had a much Larger jackpot window and is not as nice looking (the Early version is Much Rarer then the later version which was made well up into the 1950's). This Jennings Sweepstake Chief has been restored and Rechromed, so its in really Beautiful condition.
I believe the following parts are All Original to this machine: Reel Strips, Award Card, Denominator Plate, Red Plastics, Back Door, Lock and Key, Cash Box, Mechanism. I believe this to be a Matching Number machine (188868) but whoever restored the machine finished the Inside of the cabinet and unfortunately removed the original Jennings paper. The token dispenser works and has one gold token in it (the token is an exact reproduction of an original Jennings Sweepstake Chief gold token). The Jackpot also works properly.
The machine has been gone thru and is working and paying off properly. Of course this is a Light Up machine and all the lights are working properly. Charles, ILL in April and I could transport the machine to the show for an additional price....
