Red Base with flat topped glass dome. Glass dome has clover decal - original with some scratches.
Vintage 1934/1935 Model F400 Lockport, NY - Trade Mark Serial Number 55143. Ford Branded Gum - Penny Gumball Original condition. The third and fourth pictures show Ford's third body style, the F400, which is the same as the F300 except that the coin slot cover is now flat and unpainted, and the front body tag lists the company as Ford Gum and Machine Co.The serial number of the third machine is 102738, which Silent Salesmen Too dates to 1935 or 1936. According to Silent Salesmen Too , the change from Ford Vending Machine Corp. To Ford Gum and Machine Co. The outstanding feature of this particular example is the 4-lobed cloverleaf decal, which has "Lockport, NY" noted on the bottom edge. The Lockport designation on the cloverleaf decal pictured in Silent Salesmen Too (page 60) is why I've always perceived this decal style to be correct on a Lockport machine, but this style may have been made earlier as well. The fourth machine has the same Lockport tag but no serial number because the slug rejector replaced the coin slot cover that would have had it. The red-painted slug rejector is very hard to find. I saw several during my early years of collecting, and then went years without seeing another.
