This is a beautiful survivor. It's a very clean and complete machine, one or two very minor blemishes, and both keys.
Rather than try to "doll up" this machine I simply wiped it down. No sense in removing the patina. Look closely at the pix of the cast metal coin mech. The coin mech works like it should. The patent for this machine is Aug 13, but I'm not certain of the year it was produced.Sometimes things aren't always what they appear to be. But the serial number is easily readable and may, if there's a log of SN#'s somewhere on the planet. The item "VINTAGE THE MASTER. SOLID & WORKS GREAT" is in sale since Monday, October 1, 2018.
