Jennings Silver Dollar Slot Machine - $4495 (Gold Canyon)


make / manufacturer: Jennings
model name / number: Silver Dollar Club Chief Deluxe
size / dimensions: 90 lbs.

Rare antique mechanical silver dollar slot machine. Perfect working condition. Often referred to as the "Chinese Front", this Club Chief Deluxe model by Jennings was the first light-up slot machine ever made. All original except for glass that was replaced and the cord/plug for safety reasons. Yale/Jennings lock, cash box, pays correctly with working jackpot. This machine is circa 1947. Matching serials #'s on the manufacture's interior label, mechanism, and gorgeous oak cabinet ... 3 out of 3 ... which is almost impossible to find for serious collectors. Label indicates reel combination was an 80% machine. Working original lights and pristine-like red plastics. Perhaps only about 1% of slot machines from that era were dollars (that was a huge amount back in the day). Mills and Watling didn't even make a regular dollar machine. It was likely from a private club ... perhaps VFW, American Legion, Moose, etc. with lighter play. It has a jackpot meter (also rather rare) that indicates only 7 jackpots paid. Will come with 30 Eisenhower dollars or tokens to get you started.

If interested, call Jim @ show contact info . I'd be happy to answer any questions. If you are a collector or one who appreciates machines, especially silver dollar machines, from this era, you're unlikely to find a more complete original.

Cash only ... $4,495. Pickup only in Gold Canyon, AZ ... or I will deliver within 200 miles if prepaid. Not available for shipping unless at buyer's expense to completely handle pickup, wrapping/protection and delivery.
