4 Leaf Clover, by Pierce Tool & Manufacturing

I just heard of this machine the other day. It dates from 1934, and appears to be quite rare.

I found it interesting because it anticipated the principle later used in the European Rotamint machines. The Star Wars movie, "The Last Jedi", reminded me of the Jennings Little Duke and the Pace Whirlwind, along with the Wagon Wheels I later learned about; the Rotamint machines also used spinning discs instead of reels, but they weren't concentric; instead discs the same size were arranged so that symbols on their edges would be close together between them.

Hello -

We just discovered our Match-a-Pak game was also manufactured by Pierce Tool and Manufacturing c 1931 and we would like to know anything more about it, including availability of cardboard wheels. It also seems quite rare.
