Re: Bell Fruit Strike

Hello there .... I doubt anyone here can help, but you never know. Predominantly we are all decrepit old sods who were born in The Victorian era.

The steel content falls foul of coin ejectors with magnets, and the increased thickness stops any comparator devices.

Re: What is this?
