A special highlight section of the sale consists of early 20th century phonographs, antique music boxes and vintage slots. Most of the items have been fully restored and are in very good working order. “Care was taken to ensure they were preserved correctly for generations to come,” said Government Auction’s Paul Sabesky.
One of the top lots of the sale is an antique miniature Dewey 50-cent slot machine. Handmade of solid oak, it is one of only a few such machines that were produced. It is expected to make $24,000-$48,000. A 1947 Watling rol-A-Top checkerboard twin jackpot slot machine operates on nickels. A real eyecatcher, it is estimated at $10,200-$20,400.

Another beauty, an antique countertop phonograph player has a vivid red morning glory horn. It has an estimate range of $3,300-$6,600.
