Stinson Organ
Sounds like a million dollars (well nearly)... the Stinson Organ

Highlights were a Wurlitzer 950 jukebox that sold for $29,400; a Pace Royal Comet twin jackpot console slot machine, $6,600; a Filbin Mastero jukebox, $9,300; a Chicago Coin Baseball Champ skill game, $8,400; a Wurlitzer 850 Peacock jukebox, $19,800; and a Savoyad Polyphone organ grinder automation figure, $40,800.

In this case, the leading lot is likely to be an organ with a Stinson Organ Company Front on Wurlitzer Double Tracker Band Organ which uses a standard Wurlitzer 165 music roll. The piece carries an $8,000-80,000 estimate, and could make a strong investment. The auction will offer full internet bidding.
