    Description

    Circa 1920's "Play Ball!" Mills Novelty Slot Machine. Rare and spectacular "Play Ball!" slot machine was produced by the Mills Novelty company around the 1920's. Slot includes keys (one is broken), and it appears to be in working order when nickel placed in the slot. Measuring at approximately 25x13x14", three paper areas appear to be restored, while the rest remain unrestored. A perfect piece for any memorabilia room or home bar.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
