1920 's Mills Nickel Slot Machine, Plays and Pays

This is an old Mills nickel slot machine, I am not exactly sure of the exact year but early 1920s I believe. The Machine plays and pays out, and I think at one time acted as a vendor for gum or mints? Currently the knob on the side of the machine that may have been used for vending does not turn. When you drop the nickel pull the lever the reels spin then stop from left to right, if t is a payout t is a #wheel under the reels that spins from 2 to 4 to etc depending on combination. When looking in the back compartment everything looks original to me with the exception of a small piece of copper wire, I do not know what this wire serves as. The front of the machine has 4 slats of black glass that I think used to cover up the gum or mints, 2 of these slats are complete and intact, one is about half , one is missing. Next to the reels and under the bell on the front t is a piece of glass missing that is about an inch and 1/2 square, then t is a piece behind w you insert the coin that is about 1 and 1/4 x4 inches that is missing. The only numbers I can see on the machine is 0800 this is on the bottom front, sides,and back. The only dates are 1910 on the reels, and patents in the years 1911 and 1912 on the front. T is a lock and key for the back, I dont think its original and it is not attached.Packaging and shipping will be at a flat
