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 Since the prices are out of date and many of the dealers/collectors may no longer be collecting the machine we have purposely left this information out of the web version.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).

Here is what may become the encyclopedia of coin operated machines. A hardcover book that is all in color. That's right, all in color. Almost 700 machines are displayed in beautiful color.
Let me give you an overview of what's in this new book. There are separate chapters on arcade machines, trade stimulators, scales, vending machines, slots and jukeboxes. For example, there are 120 slots pictured, 75 jukeboxes, and 35 scales plus over 500 photos of other kinds of coin machines. This book will have something for everyone.
This is not just a picture book, but a historical reference and collector's guide as well. There is a chapter on how to build a collection, another one on coin machine resources, and of course a price guide. Dick Bueschel is the author. The hardcover books sells for $39.95
