COLUMBUS 1930'S MODEL "A"
GUMBALL-PEANUT MACHINE VENDOR
ATTENTION: PLEASE REVIEW THE PICTURES CAREFULLY. THEY ARE TO BE CONSIDERED PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.
- LOOKS TO BE ORIGINAL -

I LEAVE IT TO YOU SERIOUS COLLECTORS TO KNOW

WORKS!!!!!!!!!

OFFERED HERE IS MY EARLY 1930's COLUMBUS CAST IRON "MODEL A" GUMBALL/PEANUT 1 CENT VENDOR/MACHINE.
"EARLY" VERSION DUE TO THE EXTRA LOWER BASE HORIZONTAL BRACE IN THE CAST IRON BASE AND THE TWO VERTICAL SUPPORTS FOR THE TWO HOLES FOR THE SECURITY CHAIN
ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE BASE. NOT ALL "MODEL A's HAD THESE FEATURES.
IT DOES NOT HAVE A BASE PLATE. AVAILABLE ON AS ORIGINALS AND REPRODUCTION.
LOOKS TO BE ORIGINAL. WORKS SMOOTHLY AND CORRECTLY.

I HAVE SEEN PICTURES AND HEARD FROM OTHER COLLECTORS THAT SOME GLOBES HAD THE "STAR" EMBOSSED ON THEM, SOME DID NOT. THIS GLOBE "DOES NOT" HAVE THE "STAR" ON IT. PERHAPS BECAUSE IT WAS ONE OF THE "EARLY" VERSION MACHINES, PERHAPS SOMEWHERE IN ITS ALMOST 100 YEAR LIFE THE GLOBE WAS REPLACED. AS I STATED, I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THESE. ASK QUESTIONS.
PLEASE LOOK EVERYTHING OVER, AND MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION. I AM REPRESENTING THIS MACHINE AS HONESTLY AS I CAN. I WANT YOU TO BE COMPLETELY SATISFIED!!!

THIS WAS PURCHASED BY ME YEARS AGO AND WRAPPED IN PLASTIC AND PUT AWAY FOR MY RESTORER TO REDO. NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT.
TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT IT. IN CLOSING OUT MY STORAGE UNIT I FOUND IT AGAIN. YIPPIE!!!
I ORIGINALLY BOUGHT IT BECAUSE I SAW IT AS A GREAT CANDIDATE FOR AN "EASY" RESTORATION. THE COIN MECHANISM AND SLIDE WORKED SMOOTHLY. THE CASE WAS COMPLETE AND SHOWED NO DAMAGE. THE GLOBE HAD NO DAMAGE AND WAS NOT ALL GUNKED UP. NO MECHANICAL ISSUES.
.
IT NEEDS A GOOD CLEANING, RED REPAINT FOR THE BODY, SILVER FOR THE GUMBALL CHUTE FLAP AND A REPRODUCTION DECAL FOR INSIDE THE GLOBE. ITS THEN READY TO BE FILLED WITH GUMBALLS OR MARBLES. ( DECAL AVAILABLE ON E-BAY FOR $14.00 ) VERY EASY RESTORATION, OR LEAVE IT "AS IS" TO REPRESENT A PASSAGE OF 87 YEARS OF GUMBALL HISTORY!!!

I AM NOT A GUMBALL VENDOR/MACHINE EXPERT. I REALLY DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS COLUMBUS GUMBALL/PEANUT MACHINE
OTHER THAN WHAT I HAVE READ AND SEEN AT COLLECTIBLE SHOWS.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE PICTURES!! PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS. PLEASE CONTACT ME THROUGH E-BAY MESSAGING. HAPPY TO ASSIST!

THE "FIRST YEAR" MODEL!!

EXACTLY AS PICTURED IN AND QUOTED FROM THE GUMBALL MACHINE BOOK, " SILENT SALESMEN", ON PAGE 24, "THIS IS THE CLASSIC VENDING MACHINE THAT EVERYONE HAS IN MIND WHEN BUYING THEIR FIRST MACHINE. IT IS A CAST IRON MACHINE WITH A ROUND GLOBE. THE FLAP HAS EITHER A STENCIL-CUT OR SOLID STAR ON IT. BARREL LOCKS DID NOT COME INTO USE UNTIL 1933, UNTIL THEN REGULAR LOCKS AS PICTURED WERE USED".

I PURCHASED THIS MACHINE BECAUSE I CONSIDERED IT TO BE THE BEST REPRESENTATION OF A "CLASSIC" RECOGNIZABLE VINTAGE GUMBALL MACHINE. I WAS ONLY GOING TO HAVE "ONE" AND THIS FIRST YEAR COLUMBUS "MODEL A" WAS THE ONE I WANTED.

IF YOU ARE A LONG TIME KNOWLEDGEABLE COLLECTOR OR A FIRST TIME BEGINNING COLLECTOR IF THAT IS ALSO YOUR REASON, I HONESTLY BELIEVE YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED!!!!

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING
