This rare c1900s handsome mahogany, brass, and glass countertop coin till was invented, patented, and manufactured by J.C.Cox, an inventor of several devices to change gold coins, to store coins in tills, and to track payments made over a public house bar, counter, or elsewhere. The two glass-fronted racks to the left and right held counted coins, while the central mechanism carried coins through a transaction, allowing both the customer and the clerk to see which coins were used as payment, and which were due in correct change. At each “stop” the coin sounded a bell housed in the lower portion of the central mechanism.

The till will need some TLC to allow the lever to smoothly move from one side to the other and for the central mechanism to work properly. The bell is audible when the lever travels across. There are no keys but the exterior condition of the till is in very good condition taking into account its age and use.

Welcome to The Tractor Shed.

Having left my profession as a lawyer, I had the opportunity to turn my attention to my real passion: buying and selling antiques of all eras.

I quickly found that the best way forward was to buy what I like; items that make my heart flutter on seeing them for the first time and that I would like to have in my own home. I hope you feel exactly the same way when you look through my collection.

The name 'The Tractor Shed' came about after doing some research into the origins of my family home. We discovered that it was converted from the offices of a business where tractors were restored and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, keeping them going for decades. With this ethos of preserving things rather then pursuing the often-throwaway attitude we so often now see, I started my small business dealing in beautiful items that deserve to be with us for years to come.

Opening hours: Mon - Sat 10am to 6pm. I'm very happy to take calls at any reasonable times outside of these hours, esepcially for those clients where there is a time difference. Please don't hesitate to contact me as I would be delighted to assist to you.
