1960s vending machine Beatles Record!

Last weekend my dear Mother
was texting me frantically from an estate sale.to get my booty over there!... three days later we emerged and started looking through all the boxes of treasures we bought to see what was actually there!!! (yes, we went home at night but too exhausted to unpack everything!) have you been to a sale like that? it's awesome 
AAnnnyyywhooo...... long story short .... at the VERY end of the sale I ended up grabbing a projector and some discs I THOUGHT went with it.........
fast forward 2 later that night......... started checking out the projector and opened the little blue folder and saw "REVOLUTION THE BEATLES" ........hhhhhhmmmmmm?! this doesn't go with the projector! 
here's what I found........

 did you know they tried to market mini records in vending machines?!  If you didn't, don't feel too bad, it didn't take much to miss the very brief period these little discs were offered...1968-69...less then two years!  Americom Corporation of New York introduced a new music format for singles called the pocket disc.  Some came in little blue or red cardboard folders and they were sold at the counter or in special vending machines.

3.75" diameter!

the Beatles signed to their Apple label

  3. With vending machine business, you can be your own boss. It is you who will determine the vending machine business plan, and decide which vending machine to buy, among the different available vending machines like soft drink dispenser, toy dispenser, gum ball dispenser, etc.

  5. Something more important that will watch out for is certainly if ever the second hand piece of equipment that you're choosing is certainly regarding superior being employed structure. Used Vending Machines
