Wow, that's quite a collection! Whosever estate it is, I'm confident they didn't make their money by working for a salary. Unfortunately I do, so will not be able to purchase the cocktail waitress.

That's the 5th cocktail waitress I've seen, out of 21 total. If Dave says he's only selling duplicates, perhaps that means he has another.

anyone wishing to own a superior machine with the horses would need plenty of cash.....
the late Bob Levy (an american dealer) had one in his collection which looked fantastic. it sold for $36,000. his collection sold at auction earlier this year.
i think there is a video of one working on ebay somewhere? i am sure i have seen it?
"The top-selling machine – and top lot of the sale – was a Superior 5-cent Horse Race slot machine. Considered one of Levy’s supreme acquisitions, the gold-medal-winning machine also dispensed confections, which could be viewed through glass windows on the front panel. Estimated at $20,000-$25,000, it crossed the finish line at $36,000."
a truly beautiful machine! !!CHEERS!!
