Has weights and U-shaped metal bar to keep stamp packets in proper place. Springs on vertical rods still spring. Nickel and dime mechanisms work, coin releases knob and when pulled, metal plate moves to front to push out stamp pack. Includes two keys to working lock.The keys are marked Eagle Lock Co. Porcelain face is in very good condition but has a few blemishes: there is a nick on the edge near the ten cent slot; there is a nick on the left of the nickel return slot; there are a couple nicks on the right side on the back edge and top right corner; there is a very small nick in the top left back corner. What looks like a nick below the three cent stamp is a paint imperfection, it's smooth. The red seen in the third picture is just a reflection from my camera. The back has some scuffs at the bottom; it's not rust, looks more like something with a corrosive chemical on it was placed against the machine that caused the paint to flake. There is a small dent in the front left bottom corner of the base of the machine. The stamps in the machine were first produced in 1939.
I can only guess that when a family member bought this machine at an antique shop in the'60s it was still in original condition.
