Morphy Coin Op & Advertising, October 20 - 21

There were only about a dozen or so British and European machines in Morphy's Las Vegas sale last weekend (October 20-21, 2018) including the attractive Jentzsch & Meerz Grip Test and Domino wall machines.

A couple of Wonders allwins failed to make reserve but the star piece on the British front was a restored Firman Egyptian Sphinx one armed bandit (misdescribed in the catalogue as "manufactured by Mills Novelty Co. in 1930 to 1939"), which sold for $2,337.50.

Among the bandits and advertising material there were several classic early floor-standing American roulette style games (including a Caille Brothers Roulette), a selection of mechanical music machines, and a Multiphone Operating Company Multiphone Music Player, surely the ultimate steam punk jukebox.

A full list of realized prices is provided by Morphy Auctions. A much briefer list of British and European machines is in the Arena.
