About Trade Stimulators
Nothing can describe the anticipation of pulling a lever and waiting to see if you get that winning combination. That is probably why the trade stimulator is still so popular today. Once common in every store and on every shop countertop, the trade stimulator today is a rare and coveted collectible. This game machine has a design similar to the modern slot machine. When you insert a coin and pull the lever, images in a front display case begin flipping. If they stop in the winning pattern, you get the opportunity to win a prize. It was a fixture at commercial enterprises in the early part of the 20th century in places where gambling was illegal and was used to entice customers with prizes such as cigars or candy. Today's collector can rest assured that most any trade stimulator machine still around is a one-of-a-kind item. Designs vary widely from ornate, silver-plated machines to simple tin options. Find a rare collectible for your own collection by looking through the large inventory of trade stimulator listings on eBay.
