I am offering an original Coin Operated Hanson Weight Master Scale. It is a 1¢ unit built in the late 1930’s by the prestigious Hanson Scale Company based in Chicago. The materials used include cast iron, white and black porcelain, cast aluminum, and steel. The measurements are approximately 35” tall x 17" deep x 11" (at widest point), and it weighs between 50 and 75 pounds. This unit features a 7½” round face with a 0 to 300 pound graduated weight scale, height to weight ratio charts for men and women, plus directions to stand on the platform and drop a coin into the change slot. It has a combined two State Bureau of Weights & Measures tag attached to the back indicating a Hanson Model Number 900. The coin box, back door, and lock (with key) appear to be original and has the number 2954 stamped next to the back door lock. A lot of the old coin scales had an added marquee mounted above the weight dial, which is not included. The condition is very nice considering its advanced age, but there are the typical porcelain chips plus shoe toe marks in front of the platform. It seems to function OK and the weight appears to be fairly accurate. Because of the odd shape and heavy weight it must be picked up in San Marcos California. This antique is a prime example of the quality U.S. craftsmanship during the Art Deco era. I have had this displayed in my home for over 45 years, but have recently retired and need to downsize. Please Call Cliff @ 760-736-8101 For More Information.
