This is a three-reel counter-top gambling device from the 1940,s. Made by Daval Mfg. in the early 1930-40’s, the Marvel is a trade stimulator that worked on a penny and gave the player a chance to win packs of cigarettes. In addition this machine is designed to dispense an optional gumball to the player for each penny played.
The exterior paint on this Marvel has been restored and the machine itself is in good condition. The interior mechanisms all work. It has a working lock and key. If the player succeeds in getting three matching cigarette symbols, the machine dispenses a token that is good for 1,2, or 3 free pack of cigarettes. There are about 3 or 4 of these coins or tokens that are included with the machine. (please see the photos). The cigarette reels are the original reels and they do show some wear but otherwise it's in great condition.
Approximately 11" tall / 9" deep / 8" wide.
