I've been looking for a way to display all of my new Dells. I would love to get my hands on one of those.

You can get a silver/bronze age type of spinner, and with a little elbow grease you bend the wires of the pockets a bit and the spinner can hold books of that size. I can get slabs in my spinner rack.

I got one from Borders when they were going out of business.

 

Paid 50 bucks for it and love it.

Love the Dell Spinner Quicksilver Signs!!

 

(Would you be able to take some pics of all the Dell characters on the top if you get a chance at some point?)

How ironic is it that when I closed my last store, I kept fifty plus boxes of late copper and threw away a half dozen spinners.

Here's mine. Picture of the books is a bit outdated, but the spinner is still the same.

Here's mine again, in my living room. Comics are different now, but the rest remains the same:

My spinner only holds comics from 1974 and later. The racks are too narrow to hold anything 20 cents or earlier. So I'm hoping to get another at some point that can hold older comics.

Mine is obviously a Dell but for some reason Dells, Gold Keys and golden age books are pretty tight in the slots. Must have really beat up the books when they were crammed in there back in the day.

 

Regular silver and up, with a backing board, fit nicely in there.

My local antique store has one like artboy has on page 1 with the wholesome comic sign,etc for 70 dollars. Is that a good deal? They had the the circle top one once with spidey and archie already shown in this thread, but that one is gone now. I also know a guy that has a wall comic rack with the archie superman spiderman face on it, any thought on value for that if I make him an offer? Thanks

If I found that rack for $70 I would buy it in a heartbeat.
