Johnson Products Coin Wand: Circa 1972: as new: perhaps the best coin wand ever made

Winning Bid: $392.00

There is an interesting story with this coin wand as relayed to me by Mike Caveney. In the early 1970’s  Les Smith was looking for a coin wand to sell and described it to Johnson Products who were close by in Los Angeles..  Johnson Products (who Mike worked for a the time) took on the challenge and developed this coin wand. Les was thrilled and ordered the first 6.  Mike’s Mom actually sewed the bag for the wands.

It is perhaps one of the nicest coin wands ever made.  The action is so smooth the coin flows and retracts effortlessly (no need to touch the coin to get it to retract on this one).  This was after much experimentation from the folks at Johnson Products which relied on the cut of the coin and the curved slot for the release of the coin. Look a the close up of the coin: that is 6 inches away and the coin looks good.  It is a masterpiece. This was first manufactured in 1972. I do not know when this particular wand was made but the con is dated 1965 for what that maybe worth.  There is a small cap which fits on the end to allow it to be used as a regular wand without suspicion.

We are including both Johnson Products and Owen instructions.. Absolutely mint condition. The wand is 13 inches long. To be clear Johnson Products made this wand and they sold many more of this wand than Owen did. I would bid on  this wand as if it were made by and sold by Johnson Products and the estimate is based on the Johnson Products manufacturer.

Estimate $250-350
