Victor Vending Corp., Chicago, IL, c. 1950, 15 1/2". This machine is the second one I bought, which I did in the fall of 1991. It's completely restored, which I'm loathe to do nowadays, but I was young and foolish and didn't know any better then. The story of its acquisition and restoration is part of a larger story, which you can read if you're so inclined.
I've always been fond of Toppers. It's one of the most common models available, but it's the one I remember from my childhood. It's a painted steel machine with a glass globe, and it works as reliably as any vendor ever made.
As mentioned above, this example is completely restored, although everything except the decal and paint are original.
