First the bad news. There is a piece of the cast metal broke off the one outer edge. Which you can see in photos # 8, 9, and 10. It does not interfere with any of the machines workings. Now the good news… That’s it, everything else looks good and is working properly. This is THE CHAMPION CRIMPER, the lid of the wood box has that written on the top, also. The Patented date, in black. 1301 to 1307 N. Eighth Street, Philadelphia, Pa. PATENTED, MARCH, 9, 1886. This machine came out of a local, long gone candy making store named. Jacobs Candy – 35 E. Spruce Street – Hazleton, Pa. Makes the old fashion Christmas Ribbon Candy. Comes with it’s Wood and Spring conveyor track. Which is in very good shape and works smoothly. Clamp and long pin. The original Copper/Brass, Wood Handle/Crank, also in very nice shape. Made of Cast Metal, appears to be Brass Gears with no teeth missing and turns smoothly. Brass crimpers and knobs, working as should. This is a very nice machine. Over 100 years old. All in working order. It could use some cleaning. The box is a bit beat up. But not to bad for all these years. And still has the directions on the inside of lid. Please view the photos for a more detail description and to look over the condition. What you see in the photos is what you shall receive. Weighs approximately 23 Lbs including wood box. These machines don’t come along to often. Contact me with any question that you may have. Will be packed securely. Thank you for looking. The item “Antique 1800’s THOMAS MILLS & BRO, Cast Iron Ribbon Candy Making Mold, Machine” is in sale since Saturday, October 26, 2019.
