Help with Mills Vest Pocket

Postby dsimon55 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 12:22 pm

Hello All

I have seen a lot of vest pockets over the years in penny and nickle

I just got one in quarter. I have never see one before and can find nothing out about it.

Does anyone have any information on this.

I have gone over it very carefully and it really seem all original

Tanks

Interesting; never heard the 100 number before;
do you have a reference for it, or seen it documented anywhere?

Out of a sample of 100 surviving Mills Vest Pockets, just 2 were 1 cent machines and 2 were 25 cent machines.
The 25 cent machines appear to be all post war vintage, but don't know if Mills closed out the VP line with them.
Of course, SEGA continued the VP machine after Mills, calling it the Mini=SEGA.
