    Description

    Caille Brothers Double Slot Machine (c. 1904). A rare Caille Brothers (of Detroit) Big-Six Eclipse Twin oak double slot machine. When local tax authorities imposed a tax on each slot machine, the manufacturers and venue owners reacted by doubling and tripling the machines in a single cabinet in order to pay taxes once for multiple machines. These multiple machines are quite desirable, with beautiful wood and metal work. This one has an overall size of 64" x 47". The machine was re-purposed by Knott's Berry Farm to become a double-token machine with a vending fee of 25 cents. This machine is being sold "as is" with no working order implied. No keys included. Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
