(Flat Front Oak)
Coin Operated
Automatic Changer
15 1/2" Discs Music Box
with Gum Vendor

circa 1900s, 5 cent play, designed for use in commercial locations, Built very strong to withstand use in public places with heavy black cast iron legs.

This specific music box was pictured and featured in the November/December 2012 issue of the Journal of the Music Box Society International. The cover story was entitled "The Regina Musical Salesman".

Customers placed a nickel on the right side slot and played the twelve discs that are placed in sequence or selected a particular tune by using the rotary index nob on the right side.

According to the Ency of Automatic Musical Instruments by Q David Bowers, "the Stype 36 were scapped after their commercial usefulness, hence proportionally fewer Style 36s survive today than do the Style 35 music boxes that were made for home use."

It contains twelve 15 1/2 inch discs and a double comb. It has an oak cabinet. It dispenses a stick of gum with each play. Its dimensions are: 23" wide, 70" high, 21" deep.
