    Have been on this site for many years now and have never heard of anyone that has
    a penny scale in their game room. They are pretty darn cool and practical not to mention
    fairly inexpensive. Found mine at a local flea market. Hadn't really considered buying one
    but I do remember these being at many five & dime stores as a kid. Yes, I'm that old!
    Most of those were Watling lolipop head scales and smaller versions that would spit
    out a ticket with your 'fortune' on it. The one I found was a Rockola scale built in
    the mid 1930's. Believe this is the only model they ever made. Fits right in with the vintage pins.

    So does anyone else have these?
