imprinting operation. Having started this op
eration, which cannot be started until at least one
coin has been deposited the operation is automatic
until completed. By deposit of one coin or the full
complement of coins, namely five, as shown, there
will have been released one or more of the inter
mediary elements 32, by the swinging of vone or
more of the hooks 38 downwardly as the coin de
posited moves past the associated coin lever, since
each coin lever is fixed on the same shaft as one
hook 38, The release of any one of the inter
mediary elements 32 causes a contact with the

touching of push-button 56 and closing of con

While I have shown particular devices and
combinations of devices in the illustration of my
invention, I contemplate that other detailed de
vices and combinations of devices may be used
in the realization Yof my device Without departing
from the spirit and contemplation thereof,
What I claim is:
,
1. In a coin controlled ¿impression means, an

thrusting cross bar '51 rightwardly as shown in
Figs. 1 and 2, whereby the released intermediary
