Antique slot machines, like Tiffany glass, are highly valued by collectors as superb examples of period art. Experts estimate that only a few thousand of these machines, made between 1885 and 1965, still exist. High demand and limited supply create ideal investment conditions. These machines also make unique gifts.
Squires and Corrie Slot Machines, Inc. is the world's premier supplier of classic antique slot machines. All machines are beautifully restored, hand finished and in perfect working order. Sold with a written guarantee.
Steve Squires's involvement in slot machines started while he was barely a teenager. He went to work for a pinball machine operator in Chicago. His work put him into contact with many people who had slot machines. He soon began traveling to the South fixing and selling slot machines to Veterans and other private fraternal Clubs.
Steve Squires has hit the jackpot with his one-of-a kind antique slot machine restoration and refurbishing business. It all started when he obtained a large supply of spare operating parts and casings while working as a slot machine repairman in the Southeast. Squires trucked the parts to California where the California law legalizing the collecting of slot machines was passed , which allow private ownership of slot machines manufactured 25 years or older. Steve Squires and Glen Corrie, a long-time Chicago partner, established the present business in San Mateo since 1977.
Not all of Steve's products are for American collector. An increasing number of the old slot machines are now sold to overseas customers; Steve is one of the few people involved in the conversion of American-coined slot machines to accept Deutschmarks, Shillings and other foreign coins.
