Does light up as you can see. There are issues but still a great looking piece needing a little time. There has been a repair to one of the globe hold down hook holes. One of the screws for cup holder is broken off.
The coin mechanism does work but very sticky like the coin isnt making it onto the mechanism and it jams till you tap on it several times. Key for coin door barely works, lock is a replacement and you have to insert key and pull it out like a 1/16th or so and jiggle it to get it to work(locks are cheap). Looks like twist knob has an ear broken off.Tin pan in bottom looks home made. Electrical connections on switch and bottom bulb should be covered if it is going to be used with coins.
