This exceptionally rare Victoria golf ball vendor slot machine was the first one ever produced and is the only one of its kind known to still exist. Crafted during the age of prohibition when gambling was illegal, this machine was cleverly re-designed to pay out in golf balls rather than money. The vending portion of the machine was the invention of Clarence F. Grimm of California, who sought to create an electrically operated golf ball vending machine. A modified Victoria Model B three-slot machine by O.D. Jennings & Company serves as the top of the vendor. The base cabinet was immediately adopted by Jennings, who thereafter created what became known as the Victoria Golf Ball Vendor based on Grimm's original design. The original reel strips are still included and in impeccable condition, and up to twenty balls can be won for every quarter one chooses to play.

Jennings was known for creating striking and colorful cast slots meant to attract eager players, and the Victoria machines such as this were among the company's most popular designs. Its minimal, yet colorful geometric motifs capture the glamour and modernity of the Art Deco style. Today, these models dating to the "golden age" of the slot machine are popular and highly collectible pieces of Americana. To find the original prototype for one of these sought-after designs is truly extraordinary.
