Based on my research this particular 5 cent gum machine was made in the. As you can see in the photos this vending machine is BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFL!! This 5 cent gum machine is 100 times more.The only negative that I see besides "very few"little bitty"little bitty"paint scrapes on the edges, and one little bitty"little bitty"ding that you see in the photos, is the coin return lever that. Besides the negatives that I just stated, this vending machine is in FANTASTIC. FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC SHAPE for being this old. The key and lock have matching Numbers PA 697 CHICAGO, ILL, which I believe EVANSTON, ILL is a suburb of Chicago, Ill. Making it original to this vending machine.

Item will be packed very well(by myself) that will include Styrofoam all around and ONLY NEW packing materials. It measures approximately 19" x 11" x 7. On my description I stated that the only negative besides the very few "little bitty" paint scrapes on edges and one little bitty "little bitty" ding that you see in the photos WAS THE COIN.
RETURN LEVER'THAT GETS STUCK ONCE IN A WHILE'. I found out that the reason the lever was getting stuck was because of the rectangular metal inserts that go on top. Of the stack of gum that lets you know when there is no more gum in the machine....
Meaning that this machine is working 100% fine. I took out those rectangular metal inserts out and. Pulled all four levers(one at a time, by inserting a nickel every time) over and over and over and the coin return lever NEVER got stuck again. I found 3 rectangular metal inserts inside the.Machine that will be included.
