Object Name Machine, Slot
Description Mills Slot Machine built in 1945 and sold to Earl Brewer's Tavern in Evergreen, Colorado. The dime slot machine was popular because of the "fruit" wheels that spun after the gambler pulled the lever. The machine was confiscated by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department in 1948 and was not returned to Earl Brewer. Of all the slot machines confiscated by law enforcement in Jefferson County, Colorado between 1945 and 1958, this is the only one that was not destroyed.
