WESTHAMPTON BEACH, N.Y. – Grey Flannel Auctions, a Long Island-based firm whose many professional distinctions include serving as official appraisers and authenticators for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, has opened a new division specializing in antique and vintage coin-op machines.
The new department is headed by Robert M. Adams III, a court-certified appraiser and consultant who has assisted collectors, auction houses and estate executors for more than 40 years. Adams will be in charge of organizing a special coin-ops section for two of Grey Flannel’s regular sales each year – their May and December events.
An initial offering of more than 250 lots of coin-op and related items will be included in the company’s May 14 auction. A featured highlight is a collection of rare coin-operated machines that were displayed at the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.
Consignments of coin-operated machines, as well as sports memorabilia, antique advertising or other amusements, are currently being accepted for the May 14 auction.
