My sister now resides in my Grandparents home. Gradually we've been going through things to see what they left behind. My sister got curious and decided to check out the basement - we've know there were vending / peanut machines down there - just hadn't yet checked it out. She's had a week of adventure and unearthed the following... Advance Machine Co. Chicago, U.S.A. Pat'd 11-5-12 4-24-23
Otherwise known as the
"Big Mouth" 1 Cent Peanut Vending Machine
It has the original AMCO lock with key.
A box of parts revealed what we think may be gumball inserts for the machines...
Part Number B 2173
Part Number V8ax
This machine she cleaned up a bit - it's nice and shiny....
