LAS VEGAS — Victorian Casino Antiques (VCA), one of America’s premier auction houses for antique coin-operated machines, cash registers, art and more, is opening up a portion of its Las Vegas headquarters to walk-up customers interested in purchasing pre-priced collectibles from the 19th and 20th centuries.
With an extensive and ever-changing selection of rare and interesting items including Coca-Cola ephemera, pop-culture collectibles, automobile memorabilia and more, the VCA retail store will give both local and out-of-town visitors a chance to find unique and hard-to-find items. Located at 4520 Arville St. #1, the VCA store will be open 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
VCA’s next live auctions — featuring more than 1,700 lots including signature arcade coin-ops, gas and oil advertising, and rare American-made toys — will be held Oct. 11-13, 2013, starting at 9 a.m. each day. Highlights of the auction includes a Yale Wonder Clock (a 7-foot-tall advertising and music-playing coin-op from the turn of the 20th century); a massive, vintage Mobilgas “pegasus” porcelain sign; and a J.P. Seeburg Co. “Grand Champion” horse race payout machine from 1935.
