PENNY (1 CENT) MACHINES

Are penny, 1 cent machines as collectible as the higher paying machines, such as 5, 10, 25 cent machines?

In most cases penny machines sell for a premium.
Beyond the fact that most people just like the idea of having a penny machine, it depends on how scarce the denomination is...
In most makes and models penny machines were not very plentiful.
There are exceptions however. The Jennings Little Dukes are mostly penny machines, so a nickel or dime Little Duke sells for a premium over the penny.

Thanks, bajrbajr for your response. About a year ago a seller on eBay had a penny Watling Treasury listed and had it for a high price of $5,400. and it was listed for a long time. Don't know if it ever sold. I mention this because the machine is so elaborate and looks so expensive that I am surprised that Waling would have gone to the trouble of making this model as a penny machine.

One Cent Pace Bantams are not too scarce and are a nice playing machine. The newer pennies can jam the chute however, so keep a supply of the older ones.
