QUESTION: Do you know the make and age of this machine? thanks

Answer
Ken,
 Your machine is made by Atlas and is called the Atlas Ace. It is from the 1940's.
 If you can give me the diameter of the top and bottom opening and the how tall the globe is, my friend will check and see if he has that globe and then I will refer you to him.
  thanks, tom

Expertise

I am able to answer questions on old coin operated machines. These include vending machines such as gumball or peanut or other machines such as trade stimulators that did not dispense a product but were positioned on a store's counter to bring in customers or stimulate trade. I specialize in machines by Pulver, Zeno, and Mansfield and also any old cast iron or wood machines.

Experience

I have been collecting these type of machines for about 10 years and have traveled the country to antique shows and auctions.

Organizations
Coin operated collectors association

Education/Credentials
I have learned about many of these machines from traveling to view the collections of others.
