If you have an antique coin machine and want to sell it, please send me an email. If I am not interested in it, I will forward your email to a collector who probably is.

The following information is the web version of Coin Op on CD which was a book all about antique coin machines and it was distributed on a CD-ROM. This book was written in 1995 and sold in 1996. Please take this into consideration when reading the articles. There are no plans to come out with version 2. However, we do plan on periodically updating the information on the web version.
The CD version of the book has pricing information as well as a dealer directory. Since the prices are out of date and many of the dealers/collectors may no longer be collecting the machine we have purposely left this information out of the web version. However, we do keep in contact with many dealers and collectors who are actively buying and selling machines and would be happy to put you in touch with one if you have a machine you are looking to sell.

If you are looking to purchase an antique coin machine you may also send me an email and I will put you in touch with a reputable dealer. Odds are, I will not be selling the machine you are looking for (since I rarely sell any machines).

The Acme Roulette is credited with being the first machine to use a hopper as the payout device. Only about 100 of these machines were made with 50 of them going to Nevada on a trial basis and were later hauled to the dump. The remaining 50 were found in the 1970's in a warehouse. This is a great machine if you have lots of room. Click here to see a close-up of the top class and click here to see the insides of this beast.

If you don't have enough room, you might want to consider getting a Caille Aristocrat.
