A seldom found and much desired token payout cast iron trade stimulator manufactured by Mills Novelty in the early 1900's. The iron castings have embossed scarabs, an odd choice at first thought, but best explained by the fascination for the Art Nouveau Egyptian Revival during this time period. Similar in nature to the Mills "Little Monte Carlo", the player could choose from 1 to 5 colors with varied payouts, deposit a coin/coins and depress the handle. The ball races around the concourse, finally slowing down, and dropping into a colored slot. If the chosen color is a winner, a token is dispensed into side pocket. Both the wooden cabinet and iron castings have an aged restoration that has mellowed nicely with time. In fine working order with a number of original tokens along with two keys. Award paper as well as colored wheel appear to be original but machine is lacking the cash box.

Condition: (Good - Very Good).
