1890’s trade stimulator called THE CRESCENT—-patent applied for by METROPOLITAN NOVELTY CO. in original condition with original lock and original paper behind original glass. This is a very early penny flip style machine. May be the first of this kind since this looks to be from about 1895. This is for the trade stimulator collector who loves having a machine that no other collector has. Needs some wood work at the top ( see photo) and cleaning. This machine has never been touched. This may be the only known survivor. Try to find this in any book. Good luck!
