Product Description

ANTIQUE PUNCH BOARD, FORERUNNER TO THE SLOT MACHINE
WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BOY, IN THE EARLY 1940'S, THIS ITEM WAS CALLED A PUNCH BOARD. MY!!! HOW I REMEMBER MY FIRST CHANCE TO TAKE A CHANCE TO HIT THE JACKPOT! THIS PUNCH BOARD WAS THE FORERUNNER OF THE MODERN DAY SLOT MACHINE.

TAKING A CHANCE WITH THIS PUNCH BOARD REQUIRED YOU TO SELECT AND PUSH ONE OF THE SEALS FROM THE ROUND HOLES. YOU PAID WHATEVER THE TAB SAID TO PAY. THIS PUNCH BOARD WAS FIVE CENTS PUR PUNCH. THE WINNERS WOULD BE BASED ON THE NUMBER PUNCHED THAT ENDED IN AN EVEN TWENTY-FIVE. THE PRIZE OF 20 TO 500 CIGARETTES WAS BASED ON THE PREDETERMINED WINNER RECORDED ON THE FRONT OF THE CARD. HIS PARTICULAR TYPE CARD WAS USED IN TOBACCO OR GROCERY RETAIL STORES. IT WAS A GUARANTEE WINNER FOR THE STORE.

TRY YOUR LUCK! JUST A BID ON THIS AUCTION IS THE SAME AS A PULL ON THE MODERN DAY SLOT MACHINE BECAUSE YOU MAY WIN THIS PUSH BOARD TO REMEMBER THE "GOOD OLD DAYS". THIS ANTIQUE ITEM HAS NEVER BEEN USED. THE DISPLAY PUNCH BOARD IS APPROXIMATELY 5.25" X 10.25". IT WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT PARTY ITEM OR MEMORABILIA FOR A GAME ROOM.
