A few expected top lots include an early 1900s Seeburg Style "G" orchestrion, a coin-operated mechanical masterpiece (est. $20,000-$30,000); a 27-inch orchestral Regina upright music box, also coin-operated and made in 1898 (est. $8,000-$10,000); and a 1950s Shell Tokheim double gasoline pump, fully restored (est. $8,000-$10,000). All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.

The Seeburg Style "G" orchestrion is the expected top lot of the auction. The player piano melody is backed by a tightly-packed orchestra of bass and snare drums, two ranks of flute pipes, a mandolin feature, cymbal and triangle. The 66 inch tall by 79 inch wide unit retains the correct torch mosaic leaded art glass doors and comes with thirteen "G" rolls.

The 27-inch orchestral Regina upright music box is a marvelous machine, originally rented as a coin-consuming investment to shrewd bar owners as a money-maker that also provided fun entertainment, a way to divert patrons from neighboring establishments. The music box is tagged 'Orchestral Regina' to the frieze board and comes with 29 discs.

The Shell Tokheim 300 double gas pump is a true beacon of prosperity from the golden age of the motorist. This iconically designed pump makes the same glowing statement as the cars of the era. It was the recipient of a master restoration and measures 58 inches tall by 34 inches wide by 16 inches deep. Gas pumps are hugely popular as man cave items.
