THIS AUCTION IS FOR 2 VINTAGE TOY 'N JOY CANDY, PEANUT, GUMBALL, CAPSULE, VENDING MACHINES.

THE FIRST MACHINE IS A VERY RARE 1 CENT MACHINE, MEASURES ABOUT 14" X 6 1/2" X 7", AND NEEDS A LOCK AND KEY. THE LOCK AND KEY ARE MISSING AND CAN BE PURCHASED FROM A LOCKSMITH FOR AROUND $15.00 OR PROBABLY FOR LESS ON EBAY. THIS VINTAGE PENNY MACHINE WORKS FINE, AND IS IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION. IT NEEDS CLEANED UP AND COULD VERY EASILY BE MADE TO LOOK LIKE NEW. THE CLEAR PLASTIC FRONT PIECE IS IN NICE SHAPE WITH NO CHIPS, CRACKS, OR BREAKS, AND THE CHROME FRONT IS IN GOOD SHAPE AND HAS NO REAL BAD FLAWS ANYW, OR ANY MAJOR DENTS TO STRAIGHTEN OUT. T IS A SMALL AMOUNT OF SURFACE RUST IN A FEW PLACES, BUT WOULD TAKE VERY LITTLE TO RESTORE.

THE NICKEL MACHINE IS THE SAME SIZE, AND ALSO WORKS PERFECTLY, BUT HAS NO KEY FOR THE LOCK, BUT AGAIN THESE CAN BE PURCHASED FROM A LOCKSMITH OR ON EBAY. THIS VINTAGE MACHINE HAS MORE RUSTY SPOTS THAN THE PENNY MACHINE, BUT IT TOO WOULD NOT TAKE TO MUCH WORK TO RESTORE. THE CHROME FRONT AND THE CLEAR PLASTIC FACE BOTH ARE IN NICE SHAPE, AND NOT CRACKED OR BROKEN, AND HAS NO MAJOR DENTS THAT REQUIRE TIME TO STRAIGHTEN OUT. JUST A LITTLE SANDING, A NEW COAT OF PAINT, AND A LITTLE CLEANING AND THIS WOULD BE LIKE A NEW MACHINE.

THE PENNY MACHINE SAYS "TOY 'N JOY TOY OR GUM 1 CENT 932" ON THE FRONT METAL PANEL, AND THE NICKEL MACHINE SAYS "TOY 'N JOY 5 CENT CAPSULES 939" ON THE FRONT PANEL. I CONTACTED THE TOY 'N JOY COMPANY AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE NOT MADE THESE MACHINES FOR OVER 25 YEARS, AND THEY ARE PRETTY RARE.

THESE WONDERFUL MACHINES WOULD MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY VENDING, OR GUMBALL/PEANUT MACHINE, COLLECTION, AND THEY HAVE A GREAT STARTING PRICE WITH NO RESERVE. THESE WOULD MAKE FANTASTIC BANKS FOR THE CHILDREN WITH GUMBALLS, OR NUTS, OR THE NICKLE MACHINE WITH THE CAPSULES, AND WHEN THEY WENT TO THE STORE THEY WOULD NOT BE ASKING YOU FOR CHANGE FOR THE MACHINES T

THESE MACHINES WILL WEIGH AROUND 25 LBS. WHEN BOXED FOR SHIPMENT SO PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH YOUR ZIP CODE BEFORE YOU BID, SO I CAN GIVE YOU A SHIPPING PRICE THRU FEDEX.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING.
