For your consideration we are offering for sale this Marvelous Condition Circa 1933 Northwestern 33 Junior Peanut Coin Operated 1 Cent Vending Machine with the short globe and original decal in working / operating condition.

The unit measures 10 1/2" in height with the globe measuring 5 1/2" tall. At the top of the unit, it measures 4 1/4" across and at the base it measures 5 1/4".

The enameling is green and in excellent condition with no nicks or chips to the octagon top cap or octagon base.

The octagonal globe retains the original decal with no damage. It reads, "You'll Like These Delicious Peanuts Try Some 1c. Northwestern Model 33". The globe, itself, is in perfect condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. I was able to clean the inside of the globe with water to remove the peanut oil / dust, but it could use a more thorough cleaning by an expert - I didn't want to chance risking damage to the decal.

The coin mechanism is a 1 cent denomination and works as it should. I have tested with a penny 10 times and the lever engages to release the product inside the globe each of those times. There is no damage, cracks, breaks or repairs to the aluminum coin mechanism - it might need a good polish to bring back the shine.

At the top of the globe is the barrel lock and key to secure and open the top from the unit. The key works as it should to open and lock the unit. Inside the globe is the original retaining bar that expands the width of the interior of the globe and nut to secure in place.

On the base underside, the unit retains the original four rubber ball feet, which are in excellent condition.

This Northwestern 33 Junior is in above average original condition. I would consider this to be an excellent example; it has the rubber feet, keys to open and lock the unit, porcelain and glass are in perfect condition and the coin mech operates as it should. This is a wonderful piece that would be a fabulous addition to one's collection.
