Question
Chad,
I have two penny candy/gumball machines that I found in a barn. Not quite sure how to go about selling or pricing these. If you have any input please let me know. The sticker on the glass of one says Supreme Products 1c and the other says Supreme Products, Pure Delicious Wholesome, Appleton Novelty Co Cedar Rapids Iowa.

Thank you,
Jordan

Answer
Jordan,

It sounds like you have machines manufactured by the Simpson Company.  They were a popular vending company in the 1920-30's.  Simpson made many different machines so I would need to see pictures to identify the exact model and value.  Can you email or text me pictures?

Expertise

I'm an expert on coin operated machines. I can answer questions on slot machines, gumball & peanut machines, jukeboxes, arcade machines, pinball machines, gambling machines and any other device that operates with a coin. I have a couple hundred machines in my collection and have seen hundreds of others while traveling across the country and going to antique shows. I can give an appraisal on your item, but please send a picture if possible so I can give you accurate information. You can send pictures to me at buck@nvc.net
