Koken Light-Up Barber Pole Sign & Bionic Woman Action Figure Lead Coin Op & Advertising SaleSep 22, 2023 10:00 CDT
The White Vending Machine Co. patented the “Happy Jap” chewing gum machine in 1902. There were two versions of this chewing gum machine. The first was a tab gum version utilizing a mechanism similar to the Buffalo vending machine. The second was a stick gum version where the stick was vended lengthwise through the teeth of a Japanese man. A one cent “The Happy Jap” gum vendor from circa 1902 is a highlight in the upcoming Coin Op & Advertising Auction, presented by Potter & Potter Auctions. It is a rare, painted cast iron gum dispenser with dual vending slots (for stick gum) in the mouth. Other than some wear and soiling, the vending machine is in good condition. It has a vintage look of a carnival collection.
A Kenner Jaime Sommers Bionic Woman action figure/fashion doll in original box is also available in the auction. It was produced in 1976 in Cincinnati by Kenner Products. The available doll comes with original clothes and shoes, hair, and rubber roll-up skin on her right arm with all bionic components. Other auction highlights include a Koken light-up (c. 1920s – 1930s) large standing pedestal used as a barber pole sign from Koken Companies Manufacturers, Missouri and a J. F. Jecker Saloon large hanging outdoor sign from Victoria, Texas. View the complete catalog of the Coin Op & Advertising Auction and find other sales by visiting Potter & Potter Auctions.
