Actually I found this in a 1950s vending machine

Do you restore the antique vending machines?  Looks to me if you have a rehab there it would be worth some money.  Interesting; very interesting.

I'm about to start my brother in law is a machinest  I got it really good price thought it was cool 😎  seems pretty basic and just needs a good cleaning. Is from the late 40's to 50's  still have some research to do. But it only uses dimes and Nickels.

That is because a large candy bar was only a nickel all the good stuff was a nickel . Soda candy, coffee, crackerjacks and did not go up in price to a dime until the 70's.

Evidently someone put a dime in the machine and hoped to get change back...... :facepalm: Regardless... that is one cool old candy machine for sure!!
