The base is aluminum and is in great condition. It has a wonderful patina and shows normal wear where penny inserts.
The machine is working perfectly and takes a penny and slides smoothly. The original decal is present.
Substitute unlawful use only genuine. The glass bullet shaped globe has a chip on the back bottom edge, see photos #10. It does not effect the working condition of the machine. COMES WITH LOCK AND KEY! These rarely come around in any condition let alone in this very nice condition.
It's a great addition to the most demanding collection!
