I mainly collect globe machines but a gentleman from MA contacted me wanting to sell this machine. The great graphics caught my attention. The cast iron front plate has the lettering stenciled. When you insert a penny push button at the bottom and receive a stick of gum.
Columbus Model D Gumball Machine - The Silent Salesman Too says in 1911 the Common Sense Gum Co started making chewing gum in the shape of a ball and ask Columbus to make them a machine to dispense gumballs. It has a large mouth front which has the date embossed on the lip and a large side entry door.
