This machine was built in 1949. It powers up, but I don't have any cards for it, so I can't say what it's working condition is. I'm sure it could use a good cleaning and a little tweaking here and there, but the mechanism on this is very simple. You put in a nickel and it has a vacuum powered suction cup that lifts a card and drops it into the slot. They made these to be able to be converted into several different themes.Bikini pin-up girls, military planes, hot rod cars, hollywood actors, boxing and baseball legends, etc. It's a big machine and it's two pieces. It stands a little over 6 feet tall. A unique piece, nice display piece and might be a great conversation piece in a beach house or in a restaurant or an inn or a gift shop or something in a beach town.
