Vintage Antique 1928 Nickel Watling Deferred Pay Slot Machine
Offered in time for Christmas is this totally original antique 1928 Watling Blue Seal "Confection Vendor" Deferred Pay nickel slot machine in as nice of unmolested, unrestored condition as you'll ever find. All the castings are perfect, no cracks, chips, bends or repairs. The wooden cabinet is very nice, nick and mar free excepting a tight glue joint separation on one side, and a tight glue joint separation on its base. The original paint, bright work and glass are perfect too. Note the metal fortune reel strips: They're exactly as new, without blemish! Play this machine and have your fortune told all at the same time! Note the near perfect original inside-the-back-door operating instructions! How often do you find vintage slots in this condition? This machine is one hundred percent complete and offered exactly as it was manufactured. It plays and pays perfectly. The vendor operates as it should and is full of rolled mints. I've oiled the clock; every thing else works perfectly. The deferred pay mechanism functions exactly as it should: Hit a winning combination, it takes a second coin to retrieve your winnings. For those unaware, deferred pay mechanisms in early slot machines were a ruse around gambling laws (so were fortune reel strips). Theoretically, you weren't gambling since you knew what you'd receive every play, and you weren't gambling but having your fortune told! One original Watling back door lock key is included (it fits this machine's original Watling back door lock) and one original BAP cash box lock key is included (it fits this machine's cash box lock). This machine has no rust, corrosion, old repairs or damage ever. It's become popular to tell buyers they're getting a rust-free Montana barn find.
That's exactly what this machine is and there are still 28 more old machines left in the barn. I know the vintage slot market is slow so I'm testing the water to see whether or not these machines still sell.
I will carefully crate this machine in a specially built wooden crate, properly cushioned with sheet Styrofoam and bubble wrap. I've never had a machine damaged this way.
