Money Printed Machine

Postby Stepanov » July 8th, 2005, 4:41 pm

Who know about inventor of "Money Printed Machine"? Like on picture http://users.lk.net/~stepanov/magic/kartash/pic072.gif but with only two rolls.
First what I know was Greek Coskidis on 1925, but sure it should be long before.

Oleg Stepanov.

Algonquin McDuff, in the authoritative MONEY MAKER MACHINE MANUAL cites Bart Whaley's ENCYCLOPEDIC DICTIONARY as saying that Hamley's 1882 catalog included one under the name "The Marvelous Printing Machine". Albert Hopkin's in his 1897 MAGIC, STAGE ILLUSIONS ETC describes its workings. I believe last summer at the auction of Christian Fechner's items there was a very old French version from the mid-19th century...
