LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding. A live audience of over 400 is expected to compete with the hundreds of Internet and absentee bidders.
The auction will feature an array of items including all types of coin-operated devices such as slot machines, arcade games, vending machines and trade stimulators. There will also be hundreds of advertising signs, jukeboxes, Coca-Cola, saloon and barbershop items.
