    Description

    A Beatles Gumball Machine With a Set of Beatles Capitol Records Gumball Charms (US). Beatles collectors often are given the opportunity to own Beatles items which were dispensed from gumball machines, such as buttons or charms, and here is a very popular, complete set of the Capitol "record" charms from 1964, in Very Good condition. A black plastic record-shaped charm with a photo of each Beatle is here, with various song titles on the reverse. Notably rarer, this group contains a Beatles gumball machine. Records are unclear if there were any specific models of machines used for Beatles items - more likely, individual gumball operators would receive the items, affix the correct signage to an existing machine, and voila! The vintage 3" x 4" Beatles signage which has been taped inside the clear top and proclaims, "Get Your BEATLES! BUTTONS HERE!", and would date to 1964-65. This machine, approximately 15" high, would appear to be from the 1960s or 1970s and was on display at Beatlemania Hamburg as it is offered here. There is no key, and working order has not been tested. The gumballs are for display only and are of uncertain age and manufacture, and should not be eaten. Very Good display condition. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
