Look at the photos, what a contraption---certainly designed by a mad engineer---the very next year may have led to a quick demise for the operators. MILLS NOVELTY came out with a one wheel pay machine called---THE OWL - and- GAME OVER for this kind of machine- a heavy duty mechanism and much simpler to operate. This is a bargain ---the other known machine had a type written award card and the upper right frame and card were missing-- last photo shows that machine auctioned off in MAY, 2016 for comparison.
