Buying rolls of stamps for the stamp vender doesn't come cheap, a 1d vertical feed coil of stamps is about £200, and a 3d vertical feed coil of stamps is about the same, there is a complete coil of 3d stamps on Bay at the moment for £280.
I sold a similar looking stamp vendor that I renovated last year, it came complete with 2 correct stamp coils, I sold it for £800.

£500 is way too much considering there's no stamps with it.
The only information the vendor could find on the machine was this thread in which you posted the one with a £2668.97 price tag.
We can find no records anywhere of any sales of similar machines, except in your thread where there is mention of a machine like ours for sale in the USA for £2.5K. We were thinking of listing it on eBay with a starting price of £500.
I replied:

It is very much a specialist item, so selling it for a high price will depend upon finding the particular collector or museum that wants it.
Cliché rehash: "it's worth what somebody's prepared to pay for it; no more, no less."

The picture of the pillar box with stamp vendor isn't mine sadly, just included it as reference for those who can't remember them

I'm guessing it's a Scottish pillar box.
