Wildroot Hair Tonic Vendor

Merchandise Dispensers Inc. c.1950's

There are two versions of this machine, one is the version above and the other is a lotion version that works on a penny rather than a nickel. These are neat little machines with very simple mechanisms. It is not an uncommon machine but it is almost never found with the attached tin sign. The graphics are really neat and very 50's

I looked at many of these over the years but had resigned to never owning one because I couldn't find one with great original paint and a nice sign. Just when I had given up, this one came up for sale on Ebay with a really cheap "buy it now" price. It never fails, just when you're not looking a great machine falls in your lap.

This is 100% original with an almost perfect tin sign.
