This looks to be an original machine with a revamp front lower casting. Probably 1930 and worth 900.00 to 1200.00.

Hi i see you found one made in Toledo. This is a new one to me. At one time there were 4 slot machine makers in Toledo alone. The last ended operation in 1941 when the building went up in flames. Most of the machines were revamps of either Mills or Jennings. One was made from a Watling OK and no known Pace revamps exist so far though most of the revamps have that same lower front casting made by Pace. This one that you have is not known. It may be a Service Sales Novelty Co Toledo OH It may be an early revamp and the name was changed or it's another company that is unknown here. I need to do some checking of the archives on this one. At one time we also had some satellite offices here for Fey and Caille. Tokens have been found but no machines with any Toledo connection so far. Amazing how far some of these machines have traveled over the years and survived.

I thought you knew about this Ohio Sales revamp, and we had discussed it on the phone.
As I have a full set of photos in my files. It sold at one of the live auctions, a year or so ago.
I'm sure you will find some info in your files.
