RETRO & VINTAGE COIN OP MACHINES
Probably Mid March, 2019
We are lucky!!! Tennessee law allows for the sale and ownership by Tennessee residents of coin operated devices as long as they are not used for gambling purposes, and or for profit. A well known Harvard attorney found this portion of the law buried in legislation that originally stated no Tennessee resident could own, transport, buy or sell gaming machines. None of these machines are currently working. The new owner will need to make renovations to the electrical switches, contact points and adjustments, if they want these operable.
They are from the 1950s and 60s era with some as early as the 1940s era. All of these machines have been in storage for the last 15 or so years. Prior to that some were used in Havana, Cuba before the 1959 revolution when Fidel Castro took over. They left Cuba on the last boat out making a journey to first, Miami, then to Tennessee. For a time period, they were used in Eastern Tennessee in a VFW prior to going into storage.
These would be great for your man cave or for any decorative use you would desire in your residence. These are old, real and not the modern reproductions. Most are by Kenney and a few are older Bally’s.
There are 26 as a total, offers would be entertained on the entire group as a collector purchase, as opposed to auction, but once a date is selected, its auction time. No cherry picking of single items. These can be shipped to any location in the US by several carriers, or of course, they can be picked up as well. Opportunities like this do not come along daily, you might want to seriously think about adding these to a collection.
