description:  A unique one cent slot machine with a "triple disc", rather than a standard reel.  The front of the machine is decorated with a sunrise, and many bright colors.  The base of the machine is a dark stained wood.

information:  Originally designed by E.C. Bignell, a French manufacturer, who distributed Jennings machines.  New, original slot machines were rare in the 1930's, but this French design originally had French sun and moon symbols but were changed to American Fruits, like so many other slot machines.    The "Selective" part of the model name comes from the machines ability to detect and reject slugs.
