I forgot to attach the picture. It works properly. Nice all original machine with no problems.

Congrats on the sale!

Do have to wonder though, why would an original dime machine have a cabinet with a coin entry hole that is so large?
Wouldn't that cause a problem by allowing someone in the Legion hall to inadvertently just put a nickel (or even a penny) into the machine?
Since the mech is sized for a dime the larger coin would just get stranded in the top head. Seems like a recipe for upset patrons to have a machine getting jammed up all the time.

Also seems a bit odd to have a machine with a post-war serial number and club handle have a mech that pays on 2 cherries and have tin reel strips.

I am guessing that at some point in time the mechanism from an early dime machine (as indicated by the tin strips and blue badge) and the top casting from a $.25 machine were used.

Dime machines from this serial number era should have a brass denomination badge.
