Question
I am interested in buying a Mills 1937 Castle Slot machine. It is a 10 Cent machine and the front is painted black instead of the usual blue. The seller said that Mills only made the castle in Black in 1937 and it is rare to find. It is otherwise beautifully restored. What can you tell me about that? Is 1937 the year that they made the fronts black? and is that a rare find?

Thank You

Answer
Hi

The castle front is a very common machine and a lot of replica ones have been made.

I've never heard a black castle front and never heard about it being rare or 1937 being a special year.

The 10 cent model is the least desirable because the dimes jams frequently.

I'd recommend a nickel or quarter
