Handsome wooden tabletop vending machine designed to dispense Exhibit-sized cards.  The machine was designed to accept pennies in exchange for cards which were dispensed through a small slot near the coin mechanism.  Still in exceptional condition from a display point, the piece appears to be missing some of its components.  Although the wood does suffer from some looseness near the top, the overall display is strong, particularly the interesting inside panel which contains pieces of a newsprint catalog for vendors to order cards to fill the machine.
