Atlas Deluxe

Atlas Mfg. and Sales Co., c. 1930's, 16". I'm 96% sure that this is from the 1930's, but I don't know the exact year, and there is that 4% chance that it's a late 1940's model. It's a cast aluminum machine that vends a portion of bulk product for a penny. There's nothing real special about it, although it's a nicely built machine that has some of the deco influences of its era. The same company made the Atlas Ace, Atlas Bantam, Atlas Midget, and the Atlas Master, and if you didn't know that, you probably wouldn't guess it by the styling. Atlas made a diverse line before "diversity" was the buzzword it later became.

The machine pictured above is 100% original and in very nice condition. The Disney decal is original, and is one of only a very few known to exist.
