looking for help identifying a few slot parts

Postby bajrbajr » Thu Jul 04, 2019 6:03 pm

I picked up a box of slot machine parts that I have been sorting through and I have a few pieces that I'm not sure of...
I know there is an award token dispenser, but I'm not sure what machine its for.
also a couple of these are overflow chutes... but for what?

I also found this little brass name tag that reads:
BUILT - RIGHT
BY WRIGHT
SPECIALTY NOVELTIES
103

I can find no reference to Wright Specialty Novelties any where on the internet.

You are correct, one of the items is a Mill's Token Vendor and the two items circled were security additions by Mill's to prevent "Spooning" which was a "Cross-Roaders" method of cheating on a slot machine back in the day!
"Spooning" was used to trigger the payout slides to release more coins from the payout tube!
These "coin cup eaves" as they were called by Mills were usually removed in some restorations as they do make taking coins out of the coin cup difficult for larger fingers!
The lower photo is of an original Mill's advertisement and/or piece of literature originally provided here on the Forum by Freddy Bailey on another Thread!
Ciao!

Thanks for the Kind Words Shane, I like a few others on this Forum have been around the block a few times on slot machines!
I guess that's the only advantage of being an "Old Fart" like me! LOL
