An easy way to tell if people pay money for them is to look for specific ones like yours sold on ebay.
- When I value " being right" more than what IS right, I am then right...a fool.

From what I have observed, only the really old ones, or those connected with an important event like a world's fair, have any significant value.

Modern ones are probably worth about 25 cents each.

Unless some one is trying to collect every variation from a location, since most change the die rollers to keep people pumping money in to the machines. Almost all modern ones aren't worth much. Coin club ones are on the lower end of the scale, than advertising ones, amusement park are higher ,Disney does keep people pumping money with rotating their dies and introducing new ones in the parks and generally carry a premium. As been said the older world fair ones can be pricey. Subject collectors sometimes pay a slight premium for ones they like.
Bottom line is it will depend on what some one is willing to pay. Generally the can go for ,25 to $2.00
AA Rosato was a roller and compiled a book on another long time roller of elongated coins.

Many hardcore collectors sell 100 different for $30-35 with shipping included.

Pre 1970 are the only ones worth checking the vast majority of the time.
