$80,000 Stinson organ hits a high note at Victorian Casino Antiques sale

This unusual antiques sale boasts a wealth of jukeboxes, slot machines and Steve McQueen's pedal car

Victorian Casino Antiques' Spring Auction will feature two band organs, a pedal car owned owed by Steve McQueen along with more than 75 slot machines and 20 jukeboxes. The March 11-13 auction will consist of more than 1,300 lots.

There will be numerous Coca-Cola items from two large collections and much more. Categories will include coin-op, slot machines, jukeboxes, vending, arcade, advertising, signs, soda fountain, barbershop, cigar, folk art and many other unique items.

Victorian Casino Antiques' Winter Auction, held in Las Vegas on January 15-16, was well attended by over 300 people.

Highlights were a Wurlitzer 950 jukebox that sold for $29,400; a Pace Royal Comet twin jackpot console slot machine, $6,600; a Filbin Mastero jukebox, $9,300; a Chicago Coin Baseball Champ skill game, $8,400; a Wurlitzer 850 Peacock jukebox, $19,800; and a Savoyad Polyphone organ grinder automation figure, $40,800.

In this case, the leading lot is likely to be an organ with a Stinson Organ Company Front on Wurlitzer Double Tracker Band Organ which uses a standard Wurlitzer 165 music roll. The piece carries an $8,000-80,000 estimate, and could make a strong investment. The auction will offer full internet bidding.
