Stereo Cabinet – Free to a Good Home

I have a stereo cabinet that my dad built back in the mid-1970s. My house is rather small and the cabinet is on the larger side. So, with the blessing of my mother, I have decided to give it away. I thought it would be great to give it to someone who would fill it with music once again. The cabinet measures H:63", W:39", and D:18". There are cutouts in the back for feeding out cords and lots of space for records.

Jukeboxes and Slot Machines (by Jerry Ayliffe)

This is the third edition of an identification and value guide published in 1991. While the values might be regarded as out of date, their relativity is of interest and it's fascinating to compare them with today's prices. Every jukebox, slot machine, arcade and vending machine is illustrated, described and valued in the various conditions in which it may be found. An excellent reference book and guide in very good condition. $10.
