LAS VEGAS – Melvin and Anne Getlan have spent more than 40 years meticulously building perhaps the finest collection of coin-operated devices in America. And 350 of their items will comprise much of the Victorian Casino Antiques Auction in Las Vegas on May 4-6.
LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding all three days of the sale.
The fact that the Getlan Collection features the very best in coin-operated gambling, vending, arcade and amusement pieces, has collectors seeking one-of-a-kinds and other sought-after machines, making plans for this special opportunity.
These items are currently on display at VCA’s gallery. A more formal preview will be available on May 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific. The auction itself will commence at 9 a.m. on each of the following three days.
Auction flyers are available free to those contacting Victorian Casino Antiques. For those seeking a more complete array and description, a full-color, hardbound catalog is available for purchase at $40. Additionally, all of the items can be viewed on the website: www.vcaauction.com.
Special hotel rates are available to attendees at the Orleans Hotel and Casino, by calling 800-675-3267 and providing the reservation agent with code 2VCA03.
Featured auction items include:
"There’s a good chance that there will never be another coin-op auction of the size and quality of this one," said Daniel Sidlow of Victorian Casino Antiques. “But if another should occur, it will likely be conducted by Victorian Casino Antiques.”
