Please Name This Tiny Cigarette Slot

Postby bentcoin » Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:28 am

Could anyone name this machine ?
It is a very primitive mechanism but I'm hoping it will shine up a bit.

The name plate is missing off the bottom front;
It's either a Western Equipment Match-Em or Garden City/Pierce Prince; c.1937.

Are you the famous BentCoin from Las Vegas?

To All:
The new person listed here on our Forum as (bentcoin), I know very well, and has nothing to do with (thebentcoin), whom
we all know as the "Vegas Butcher", whom has destroyed more machines than I can count, with his FAKE & BOGUS examples,
that have snookered collectors for many years.

As for the machine in question here, it is definitely a "Prince" or a "Match-Em", and difficult to tell without the missing
name-plate, as they were identical copy-cat machines. Only difference that I have seen in the original paint colors, are
two different shades of green wrinkle paint, and have also seen them in a tan wrinkle.

And ---------- to (bentcoin) - Welcome to our Forum. Even though this is a name you have had on eBay for many years, perhaps
you should start over with a different name, so that all of our collectors Do Not confuse you with the Clown in Vegas. [-o<

It's very nice of you to inform me about my machine.

Apologies, but I am not the ebay seller you spoke of.
I am actually in Nashville, TN. I am only on my 4th coin op.
I find these machines fascinating.
I have almost finished polishing the exposed aluminum striping
on this Prince/Match-em and will offer it on the afore
mentioned site.

Thank You All For The Help

The gentlemans name from The Bent Coin out of Nevada is Fred Able. I bought parts from him ......once. I would also recommend you change your "Handle"

bentcoin:
Hopefully we can clear up all this confusion. You are new to this Forum, and when I first welcomed you, I thought
you were my coin-op friend with the initials G.B., from Indiana, who's userID on eBay is 'bentcoin'.

So, I am assuming you just picked this "bentcoin" name out of the air, to use here, which is not a good name to be
using on this Forum, as you have already alerted members into thinking you are the coin-op Jerk in Las Vegas, that
goes by "thebentcoin" on eBay, whom has made an Ass out of himself, for many years, by screwing buyers, with his
Fake & Bogus machines, by adding extra recast parts, that don't belong on machines. Also sells some of the Worst
recast parts that I have ever seen, and copies other peoples reprinted paper to sell, as well as having new phoney
award cards, and other paper made, that never existed. He is known here, on our Forum, as "The Las Vegas Butcher",
which many, (and hopefully all), stay clear of.

Might I suggest, not using this name any longer, and pick something else, so as not to confuse any more of our crew.
If and when you do, please alert us as to who you are, and what you did. Also put your Nashville, TN location on the
sign-up listing. This helps when you may need help from a member in your area. Thank you.
