Please forgive our lack of knowledge and definition on most things. This is from an estate
we are liquidating and we have very little information or details. And the person who inherited
the estate knows little to nothing also. Anything stated below is sometimes only a guess on our
part but if indeed a guess, that is stated. Items that we have information on will be noted. We are
under the impression that most of the parts were manufactured by Mills because of notes & such
that came with all the items. Unless we specifically define otherwise, our best guess is that it is
for a Mills machine. Again, we will sometimes not define with any details because we don't know
for sure what the item is for the most part and therefore we will let the bidders do that themselves.
If one item is shown, that is what you will receive and if multiple items are shown the same holds
true. The auction is for what appears in the photo or photos. If the auction is started higher than a
penny, it is just a guess and usually about half of what we have observed similar items selling for.
This is a nice old Mills Belomatic "Hightop" slot machine made in the 1950s in
machine defines that. A regular Hightop has a different top casting and format.
We ran a few quarters through the machine and it is quite smooth. There is no
damage to the machine and all the nickel plating and polish is in fine condition. The
beautiful old oak wood has a nice patina to it with great charm. Everything seems to
be original including the heavy back door but the lock was missing. So we found one
in some parts boxes that worked and installed it but the age on that is not known to
us. Other than that, we have not done anything to this machine and we are selling it
the way it came to us. Again, this is an old machine and not a reproduction. Great
item for a collector or just a fun item to have for a den, office, or party room.
This will be sent with the Forward Air Freight Company to the closest major city air
terminal near you. The total cost stated includes professional crating at no extra
charge and placed on a wooden pallet. This company far exceeds FedEx and others
for value as I'm sure you will agree.
If your winning bid is placed 4 days from the start of the auction and it sells for over $1400, we
will pay for all crating and shipping costs and there will be no charge to you. You might want to
reflect that in your bid rather than placing a snipe bid at the last second which will add almost
$100 to your win.
