Vintage Execution Arcade Machine: Hangman, Anyone?

by Paul Strauss

I’ve seen some strange stuff over the years, but this has to take the cake as the most unusual arcade machine I’ve ever seen.

This rare vintage penny arcade machine simulates an execution. Just put in your coin, and a tiny hanging will be performed, as a bell rings out and a little figure is dropped through the gallows. Delightful fun!

The machine originally took British pennies, but was modified to accept U.S. quarters at some point.

This rare machine was created by Charles Ahrens, and is currently for sale over on eBay, with a Buy-it-Now price of $17,499.99(USD).

Is it just me, or does this thing seem like something you’d find as you wander around Columbia in Bioshock Infinite, somewhere between the vending machines and the kinetoscopes.
