In the 1980s, a renewed interest in the 1950 era led to the resurrection of the Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox. In 1986, the Wurlitzer company decided to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1015 by manufacturing, once again, the celebrated Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox, calling it the "One More Time". This new jukebox had the design of the classical 1015, but with the latest technology of a modern jukebox.
The new jukebox was so successful that it reestablished the Wurlitzer name and the 1015 jukebox as an American icon. As a result in 1995, the U.S. Post Office issued a new stamp commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox.
The stamp is intended for use by business mailers who presort their mail. Although, the stamp has no denomination, it has a 25 cent value. The stamp is available in rolls of 500, 3000 and 10,000. Posters of the stamp are available for $19.95 plus $4.95 shipping. Send a check to Ken Durham, GameRoomAntiques 909 26 St NW, Wash DC 20037 or call 202-338-1342 in the evening for credit card orders.
If you want to experience a part of the glory of Wurlitzer's history, you can still drive to the now defunct Wurlitzer factory in North Tonawanda, New York. The building even has the original Wurlitzer neon sign on its top. Even though they no longer make jukeboxes in the North Tonawanda factory, you can see and even buy one of the famous Wurlitizer jukeboxes from WURCO, one of the country's leading jukebox and gameroom showrooms, which is located in the Wurlitzer factory building. For directions, call 716-694-6247.
