1920s mills operator owl bell

Postby 1949 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:18 am

I would like to ask someone about a mills slot machine. My friend sent me a picture of a slot machine for sell. They said it was a 1920s mills operator owl bell. I had him ask what the serial number was, which I thought was on the right side top casting. They said they could not find one there, so the question I would like to ask is could it be in another place? Another thing I noticed is I don`t see any nails on the wood base front. I don`t know if they reproduced these or not. I would appreciate any info and I Thank You for you time!

It is a Mills Operators Bell. Being a 25C machine is a plus. Also check the date on the right side of the bell, that tells you the model year of the machine. My memory is getting bad but I think the model ran from 1915-1925. I may be off a yr or two. These machines were 20 pay max no jackpot, but were converted later to jackpot pay. This one is original as made.
