Chicago Coin Machine Co.

Hello, Does anyone know about or have relatives that worked at Chicago Coin Machine Co.on Diversey St.? Jerry Koci was a designer there. This company produced devices like pinball games, arcade games, so on. In the early 50's they made a device called the Band-Box. It was built like a stage with curtains and mechanical band members and was hooked up to a Jukebox. When the jukebox was playing the band became animated to appear to play the music selected on the jukebox. I restore these devices for collectors and am always looking for background information on the device and the company. I have e-mailed some past employees and sales reps for this equipment, but I am always looking for more information, and my searching found this Forgotten Chicago Forum. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Paul
