1st machine - 1951? Tom's Roasted Nuts vending machine.

I heard about this form from a friend of mine who turned me on to collecting. Figured I would post my 1st vending machine and many more come.

I did some research and I think i found the patent schematics and grant filing. I got it for $125 and cannot find a value for these or if they are rare or not. I did see similar ones selling for $400 - $600 so I really don't know.

Here is the Patent filing

TxGuy74:
Welcome to our Forum. Your friend turned you on to a very interesting hobby. Even though many of us are
focused more on Slot Machines, we do have interest in all forms of coin-op machines. Your first machine is
one we don't see very often, and hope you will share additional photos, as you restore it. Also nice to see,
are extra features, like your patent sheets. Thanks for that, and don't hesitate to ask questions, as there
are members here that have extended knowledge in Vending machines.
