I have a national cigarette 9 pull knob machine that is missing the piece that says cigarettes that would have light up. Does anyone know if this piece is reproduced or anyone have an original for sale? Thanks for you help!

The display area and the "Cigarettes" logo above the display is one piece of glass. Is yours completely missing? There are a couple of versions, block letters and the more familiar script.
Is your machine original or restored? I can check to see if I have an extra 9 selection glass... I generally buy the smaller 7 selection model which leads me to believe I may not have a 9 selection glass, but I'll get back to you over this weekend...

Yes it is missing. I think from the pictures I have seen it would have had the script writing. Here is a picture of mine...sorry for the bad pic only one I have on my phone of it.

Unfortunately, I only have one 9 selection model and the glass is broken.

Glad to see a "Don't Tread on Me" Flag ! ! !

Flying at my home as well ! ! !

Now on to second order of business...
I do not know of anyone publicly selling reproduction display glass for National Cigarette Vendors...
I have the artwork re-created and then make these myself...
I am working on artwork for the early 9 selection glass...
Posted are the two version I have for the 7 selection, but probably could easily create this in a larger display glass...
