Al Hoff

Townsend Mfg. Co. 1939

The unique thing about the Al Hoff or "Magic Vendor" is the mechanism in the top. You put a penny in and pull the handle and the penny falls through a tube into the base of the machine. There is a window in the mechanism that shows the last three coins used. The only reason I can find for this window might be slug detection. Other than the unique mechanism this is a pretty basic machine made of cast iron and sheet metal.

This machine is all original with original paint and decals. The only flaw in this particular machine is a small crack in the casting on top by the coin entry.
