1930 Mills Poinsettia 1c Slot Machine!

Up for auction with NO reserve is a very interesting and hard to find penny slot machine. Called the Jackpot Bell by Mills and more commonly known as the Poinsettia by collectors, this model is one of the very first three reel slots machines to use a jackpot!
The standard Poinsettia machines advertised by Mills were 5c, 10c and 25c. In very limited numbers during the height of the depression, 1c machines were made. This example is one of the few surviving machines - in untouched original condition!
Just recently purchased from the original operators family, this machine still works good and has a vintage look that can not be reproduced.

Another very interesting detail about this machine is that originally it had a side vender! As you look over the photos below you will see w it was mounted on the right side. Unlike 5c machines that vended rolls of mints or gum, this machine would probably have used a gumball vender. How cool would this machine be with a gumball vender attached again!
