|Comment||Larry, Thanks for steering me in a positive direction. I will most defiantly visit COCA. I wish I could offer you more than a "Thanks" but being forced to medically retire at 62 yr's and am living very thin for now. I will recommend you to a friend that has similar interests. I liked the brevity and obvious honesty of your answer. Not all that common now days. Again, thank-you sir for your time. Respectfully, Michael Shoop|
Answers by Expert:
I can answer virtually any question relating to coin operated machines. I have been a BUYER and COLLECTOR for over 25 years and have authored a number of PRICE GUIDES on the subject. My favorite coin operated items are penny arcade machines and pinball games, although I have a vast knowledge in all areas. I also have a huge quantity of coin operated paper advertising which can help date and identify most items.I can answer questions on vending machines, arcade machines, fortune tellers, slot machines, digger/crane machines, gumball machines, peanut machine, gum machine, strength testers, lung testers, pinball machines, gambling machines, bowling machines, etc. I have expertise in the machines from Mills Novelty, Caille, Watling, Keeney, Genco, Chicago Coin, Gottlieb, Bally, Williams, etc.
I have written a number of Price Guides for penny arcade machines AND for pinball games and am considered one of the experts in the hobby on pricing.
I come from the school of experience. Collecting Coin operated items is my life and hopefully you have some questions to test my abilities!
