Gaffed "Bee Hive" Game in Original Case. Chicago: Hunt & Co. (?), ca. 1930. Metal "cage" sits atop felt-covered wood base. A metal ball is dropped into wood/metal "cage", sliding down into one of 30 numbered chutes to determine if a prize is won. Ball is in sight at all times yet operator can control it at will. Base 22 3/4 x 22 3/4". With carrying case. Scarce. Advertised by gambling supply houses as a great device to run with jewelry at fairs, picnics or other places. The ball is dropped by player in center hole at top of cage and rolls down and comes out into one of the spaces. Considered a wonderful machine for ten cent play that never fails to make big money.
