It looks like it's designed to vend packets of some sort. I guess it could vend coins if you put them in packets... !PUZZLED!

Re: identity of thes allwin?

Definitely Shefras, although obviously a variant of the more familiar electric-pay version TF posted. Shefras made both oak with overhanging top and base style cabinets and the streamlined, recessed-top style, in a softer wood. Anyone know what wood it is? Considerably lighter-weight than oak.
