Mills 7-7-7 on Craigslist

Postby edgeCity » Mon May 15, 2017 7:30 pm

Clean looking Mills 5c 7-7-7 near Madison, WI. Thinking of making an offer. Any concerns?

just make sure the token vendor is present. not an expensive item if it's not there. with the tokens would be nice too. not sure the paint is original (factory) but, do look good.
ask the seller for a few more photos.

Nice looking machine, but I have to agree about the paint. Just Too New looking, compared to the
bangs and scrapes on the rest of the case. Has to be a fresh repaint. No chips around the coin entry,
but the 5c button, and jackpot frame have worn paint. Plus, this is not a color found on most HiTops.
I'm pretty sure if you were to see pics with the back door and bonnet off, there will be new over-spray.

even the down town casinos in L.V. usually picked a bright basic color to repaint them , not gold or copper. looks to be a hard tone type finish , which is nice.

Appears to be missing the regular jackpot. Looks like a card with pictures of coins in the jackpot window.

Haven't heard back from the seller, but I'll allow that the paint does not look AT ALL original! That color would be more appropriate for a Dodge NITRO. Also noticed that the coins aren't evenly spaced in the escalator, and it looks like one's hung up in the coin entry slot. Oh well -- nickel 7-7-7s aren't very hard to come by although it seems as though they're priced around $1200 no matter what condition they're in . . .

Interesting -- a Jewel Bell and a 7-7-7, BOTH priced at $1250. I wonder if they'd take MY 5c Jewel Bell in partial trade for the 7-7-7!!
