In 1960 SeeCoast produced the first coin operated viewer. Today you will find SeeCoast observation viewers and Penny Pres Machines in towers, observation decks, scenic overlooks, ships, parks, nature preserves, refugesand other attractions around the world. So what exactly is a coin operated viewer. No doubt you have seen them, you may simply know them by some othername.
Through the years we have heard our coin and non coin operated viewers referred to by such names as spyglass viewers, coin-operated viewing telescopes, scenic viewers, scenic telescopes, tower binoculars, binoculars, scenic magnifiers, tower viewers, coin-operated viewers, coin-operated binoculars, viewing scopes, coin-operated viewing machines, non-coin operated viewing machines, non-coin operated viewers, coin-operated viewfinders, tower scopes, viewing stands, observation binoculars, non-coin operated viewers, tower scopes, observation binoculars, observation telescopes, coin-operated viewfinders, optical rangers, optical sights and observation telescopes.
We've even heard them referred to as observation viewers, revenue telescopes, non-coin telescopes, spy glasses, revenue binoculars, stationary telescopes, stationary binoculars, and even my little gold mine. Because all of our products can be configured to be ADA compliant they have been referred to as wheelchair viewers and wheelchair viewfinders.

Every SeeCoast viewer and scope is covered by our exceptional 5 year limited warranty against defective workmanship or materials. You will not find a better viewer anywhere.
