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 Since the prices are out of date and many of the dealers/collectors may no longer be collecting the machine we have purposely left this information out of the web version.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 Buckley Bones (circa 1936) is a fascinating machine that play the game of craps. This machine, along with the Bally Reliance almost put Mills out of Business because of their disaster with the Mills Dice machine. Click Here (warning, video files are very large, do not view if you are connected with a slow dial-up connection) to see a video of a Buckley Bones machine in action.

If you get a Bones and it does not have the gold award tokens then contact Alan Sax as he has made excellent quality reproduction tokens.
