Victorian Casino Antiques’ Spring auction, held on March 9 and 10, sets records in live attendance and gross sales. According to Pat McGuire, partner in Victorian Casino Antiques, “the live audience was the largest in our history.” The bidders were not shy in that prices on many items set records in their categories. Across the board there was interest in gambling machines, trade stimulators, quality advertising pieces, especially, gas and oil related items and arcade machines.

Some of the reported highlights included: a Mills Roulette machine, $165,000; Buckley Bones Dice machine, $18,700; Hance Gumball machine, $5,720; 1956 Oldsmobile porcelain air conditioning sign, $8,525; Dayton Tire neon sign, $8,250; toy Richfield oil tanker, $6,600; and an oak display cabinet, $13,750.
