Another rare ad ,I knew I had somewhere.
date is Feb. 9, 1946 ! no image of the machine but , still a rare ad ,on a harder to find machine.
note the title it was given "Mills half dollar bell".
Nice all the dates are here And nice list of their distributors at the time.

Bill;
I don't believe I have the 1946 "operator's order blank", but have the 1947, listed there, only 3 machines listed in 50 cent, B.C. for $302.00, Golden Falls for $312.00, & Club Royale for $356.00.

1948 order blank;(under half dollar machines) 1) Black Cherry $302.00 2) Jewel Bell $302.00 (I've never seen !!!) 3)Golden Falls $312.00, 4) Black gold $312.00 , & 5) Club Royale $356.00.

1949 order blank; Black cherry was discontinued.
Now listed (under each machine name) in 50 cent; 1) Black beauty $312.00, 2) Black Gold $ 312.00 ,3) Blue Bell $302.00, 4)Club Royale #356.00 , 5) Jewel Bell $302.00.
bonus , melon & token not offered in 50 cent.

Interesting which were offered & which weren't in 50 cent , same types of machines, same parts.
so for only 3 years the Black Cherry was in 50 cent. & I have one. but mine is in the factory colors of the Jewel Bell , not the silver.

Honestly not sure how many of these "named" machines I've actually seen in 50 cent play. can only recall B.C. & G.F., not the others.
any one have images of the others , Please post.
well past my nap time......
