Johnson Fare Box Co Early Crank Type D Copper Trolley Bus Coin Box Counter WORKS
I have over 30 different pictures so please examine photos above through eBay and below through Auctiva closely because they are being used to describe this ebay item and it's condition.
Here is an authentic and functioning early Johnson “D” type
streetcar fare box of the 1915-1920 period. This is an highly uncommon variety
of hand crank manually operated fare box. Unlike the very common and much newer
electric-weld fabricated fare boxes, this scarce early vintage edition has a
copper riveted body along with pinned faceplate. Coin drawer, inspection plate
doors, housing posts and numerous other components were also assembled from
copper. Another unusual feature of this fare box is the metal (copper) coin dam
surrounding the money inspection plate trap door.
This is an almost 100-year old veteran piece of equipment. This device displays scars derived from daily street railway fare collection service. There are bumps, bruises, smudges and tarnish upon the malleable copper components. The original steel side plate with keystones for affixing within the streetcar are intact. This Fare box accepts and registers (counts) penny, nickel and dime coins, as well as tokens on a separate cyclometer. Please note that I was not able to test if it does indeed count tokens because I had no tokens to test it with, however the coin counter works well and will add 1 cent to the meter if you cycle a penny, or it will add 5 cents to the meter if you cycle a nickel, and it will add 10 cents to the meter if you cycle a dime through it. This machine is ready to mount within your streetcar and roll through the city collecting passenger fares.
Most likely, there were not many Johnson fare boxes manufactured with solid copper body shells. By the nature of hard public service use, it is also likely that very few of these survive to this day. All in all, this is a rarely encountered early copper Johnson "D" fare box that is in good working order.

Terms of Sale
Since nearly 95% of the items that I sell are old, used, or vintage, they are offered in "AS-IS" condition. Since "used" items can have many issues it is many times impossible for me to list, see, or know all the flaws; however I will always try to describe the item to the best of my ability and provide pictures that are representative of the item(s) condition, but if an item is being sold as "used" it is being sold "as is". My descriptions will be as honest and as accurate as possible; but because I'm no expert your comments and corrections are most welcome. Feel free to email me your questions or comments before you bid, I will gladly insert your correction in my listing, or answer your question. All of my merchandise is guaranteed! If you feel an item was misrepresented, you may return the item for a refund, please EMAIL ME FIRST before you return your item. I give refunds on clear, non-disputable misrepresentation that is brought to my attention. For example if I said that an item is not chipped, and it is; OR if I said a product works and it does not. Remember, it is the buyers responsibility to read my description, my item specifics, and view my picture(s) closely before placing a bid. Thank you.
Please honor your bid and I will do my best to provide you with prompt, honest, sincere, and excellent service.
