Victorian Casino Antiques Fall 2013 Auction Highlights

LAS VEGAS – Featuring 1,700 lots of rare and unique collectibles, Victorian Casino Antiques (VCA) hosted another fast-paced, fun-filled live auction Oct. 11-13, seeing bidders from around the world participate both on-site at VCA’s Las Vegas showroom and remotely via the phone and internet. The three-day auction saw plenty of vintage toys, advertising materials, art, cash registers, and a terrific selection of VCA’s signature coin-operated machines go up on the auction block as more than 2,100 bidders competed to claim their favorites.

One of the highlights of the auction was an ornate, cast-iron Dayton candy store scale by the Computing Scale Co., of which only six are known to exist. These very rare scales from the early 1900s were awarded as trophies to corporate officers and top salesmen, and this model in excellent original condition sold for $15,600 in the fall auction.
