A clippies ticket machine
I just bought an old bus ticket machine the one with the dial, like a old telephone were you ring up the price ie: 5d, 7d, 11d and so on.then turn a handle and out come,s a paper ticket off a roll with the stage and price even the ink is still working
bus conductors used to have it over their shoulder on a strap others must have thought they were hoppalong cassidy and slung it low on their hips lol.
It,s an LUT machine No 69 on the metal carry box I wonder if it was a wigan clippie ? was it Yours???

I recently sold 2 badges (driver & clippie) on Ebay, was suprised @ the amount of bids i got considering mine were pretty high numbers, but collectable stuff is the old busmans stuff. You got a good find there jj.

I have a couple of gas masks. If you contact the Internet cafe in King Street They may still have their stuff. They did a project last year They had all sorts of posters, photographs, artifacts, etc. A lot of work went into the project. The results were First Class. I am sure if they still have the stuff? They would loan it to you.

I still have my PSV drivers badge so I wonder if that would bring anything in, and regarding the clippy machines, we scrapped and crushed a full skip load of them when the buses were privatised in the 80s and they went on the digital ones.

Drivers badges fetch more money the fewer numbers they have on them, well that seemed to be the case when i was watching them on Ebay. pity you didn`t stash a few of them machines aitch.

If it has a dent in it, it could be my dads........ hehe
He was employed as a clippie for only a very short time, he'd got into a scrap with another fella, when the guy was later at the bus stop my dad clonked him with his ticket machine.....short career on the buses.
