This is a 5 CENT -- ORIGINAL CLAWSON DICER TRADE STIMULATOR-patent date 1890------in original condition. NOTE--the window that shows the coin played---this feature on this FIRST trade stimulator set the trend on most all gambling machines to follow for many years-the coin played drops with the next coin---see photo 4.According to the late and great coin-op historian DICK BUESCHEL, this is the first COIN OPERATED GAMBLING MACHINE--circa 1890. Very few of these CLOCKWORK dice trade stimulators have survived-----works perfectly. CLAWSON'S ----own business card----found in the original factory. Also INCLUDED is a copy of first edition of GUIDE TO 100 TRADE STIMULATORS-----signed by DICK BUESCHEL in 1978.
This is an opportunity to OWN A REAL GEM. NOTE--- last two photos show the original card with CLAWSON business motto. " SCIENTIFIC AND EXPERIMENTAL MECHANICAL EXPERTS". NOTE-----approx 65 pound cast iron base has been added to bottom (with CLAWSON INFO) so this machine will not tip over(the originals were screwed to saloon wood floors). NO OVERSEAS BUYERS---too much trouble.
