Antique 1950s-Era National Brand 7-Pull Art Deco-Styled Cigarette Machine
1950s-Era National 7-Pull Cigarette Machine (NO tobacco products present or in machine)
-- ALL ORIGINAL and Cool Art Deco Styling --
Original coin slot and badging present -- 30 Cents a pack! This puts the machine as operational in the early 1950s.
Original maker mark badging present. (When you can find one of these machines, those are frequently missing.)
Original Vending Company decals fully present.
Original cigarette brand decals still present, as seen in the pictures. The "usual suspects" brands are present.
Original mirror present.
Original operating instructions all remain present and clearly visible.
NOTHING is missing, all complete -- except for the old keys.
SALE PRICE: $1,400 These sell for more than double that number in restored condition!
In storage for many, many years and thus in very cool antique condition. (See pix included w/ listing.) Of course, the keys have gone missing over this old girl's journey and so the interior has not been accessed since Harry Truman was President -- no TELLING what is in the old coin box or otherwise within the interior! We have not opened it to check but can see that all of the cigarette products have been removed or sold long ago.
The barrel lock on the top section is stamped with the numbers NV 61. The more traditional lock on the bottom section is stamped with the number 401.
This machine comes in 2 sections ( as seen in the pics) and is HEAVY. Bring help to transport it if you're the lucky buyer!
MEASUREMENTS: 63.5" tall, 23" wide and 12" deep.
These machines are very hard to find now and this one appears to be right, complete and fully functional. All of the 7 pulls are present -- as are all of the original decals. ALL maker marks are present, which is very unusual. This puppy is ready to display or is an excellent restoration candidate.
