Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

He's now saying its not that rare after all! The token part has been removed; yes - no coin box, and didn't comment on the wrong handle, or so-called rare UK coinage. Asked him to test lining all the 7's up manually and see if it throws the jackpot.

Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

Thanks for the info. Seller thinks it's rare as it's got the 777 100 coin payout, UK coinage (which the majority seem to have anyway). Said he could put on a pallet for delivery too!! SHREEK. Have asked how the 100 coins payout works and if he has tested it; let you know.

Yes, my offer would be around that mark. Could I ask for more info on token vendor and discs?

Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

Yes thought that! It must be worth more than £550 though, surely?

Re: Gumball and collector's card vendor 1D

Thanks PM, Yes that machine is identical, unlike the Premiere one. I have just started stripping it and on the back of the display cards there is also that maker's name "Amcomatic" (dated 1958) but also"Universal Automatics Ltd" but I guess that could have just been who supplied the cards maybe?

Re: Gumball and collector's card vendor 1D

Thanks, yes I saw those types for sale but think they are USA ones. Mine seems like it might be British-made maybe. The 1D coin mech looks original and the display cards both have UK writing on the backs.

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin. Hi, Just picked up this from my local Antiques and Collector's Market. Can anyone shed any light on it? It has no maker's name and runs on old penny 1D.
