Re: Pipe Dream

Thanks to Bob's friends we now have the inside dope on the Matthewson Yacht Race. Firstly, thanks to sweetmeats for the pictures. It was comforting to hear that he needed his son's help in order to post them on the Forum. I was beginning to think I was the only one left from the dark ages. Gameswat'...

Pipe Dream

I have always searched for the "Holy Grail" although I've been less than successful. Applying this obsesssion to my coin-op collection, I was constantly on the prowl for one-of-a-kind bargains. When I first read about the Matthewson Yacht Race in the Forum I just knew I had to have one (in...

Re: When you gotta go...

Mr. "P" posted that the Lenox coin-op dispenser was made by Lenox Ceramic Art Co. of Trenton, N.J. I question why a ceramic company would cast an iron product. Also, the dispenser is inscribed Providence R.I.(not N.J). There was a LENOX HOLDINGS which merged with Gorham Silver which was ba...

Re: When you gotta go...

Mr. "P" indicated that a Lenox TOILET coin-op (pictured) sold for $ 10,000 in 2005 '!' and that's no B.S. (excuse the pun) '!' I believe that this pricey coin-op is connected to the Lenox Co. (pottery) and to the Gorham Manufacturing Co. ( silverware) How these two historic companies ended...

Re: When you gotta go...

Thanks to Mr. P. we learned that the Romans invented the coin-op Toilet in the year 74 AD............ I have adjusted Roman coinage for inflation and calculate that it would cost over one million dollars to gain access to a modern day CRAPPER. Surely, there would be a lot of wet pants while feeding ...
