Bringing this to the top, having reched my mid-fifties, starting
to flash back to those care-free days of the 60's.
Here is a machine that recently sold at action, its post Decimil cash, was
there really a profit in selling some thing for a penny..
(I cannot post a link yet, but punch in BEECHNUT CHEWING GUM under
google images, and it appears a couple of bars down )
I seem to remember the 2d / 3d? machines were less 70's funky, ie:
a more solid green design like the product packaging.
Also does anyone remember the square pink gum that came with a sort
of confederate ' green' US banknote, always on the search for the $1000
bill as a kid.
