Re: Canterbury Auction Galleries sale 5-6 Feb

Sure for a small few it might be worth while. He's a great guy but when you have a lot of money tied in the bible of Bryans machines I personally would want to at least break even before listing the information. As once it is out there the price of the original would be wiped out. After all its only...

Re: Canterbury Auction Galleries sale 5-6 Feb

I am in contact with the collector. However he did pay to obtain the ledgers so as for posting it for free.... you have to ask would you. He bought them in the '80s and they weren't cheap then. Maybe if we had a whip around or someone offered to buy them or a copy from him to cover the investment he...

The pay in went down fast. !THUMBS! The auctioneer is brilliant seems to get better every year. I'm not sure if i...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I've attended probably 7 out of the last 10 Coventry auctions. Reasons I haven't been: As a previous poster had said it depends on what machines are on offer. This has only become an issue the last few years due to the dates clashing. If not I would attend anyway. We all understand the reason for th...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

I'm the seller of the fortune teller. And as moon river clearly knows more about the machine then me. Have you seen the machine in person or have you seen the auction catalogue or have a copy to be able to compare the two? With your comments with nothing to back up that I'm trying to pass as the sam...

Re: Wombles Cake vending Vintage Slot

Over here in Gibraltar most of the vending machines are made by Wurlitzer.

Rotomat slot machine

In years of collecting I've never owned one until a few weeks ago when I was collecting a machine and the guy offered me one at a price I couldn't refuse. I've always looked down on them. However...... how good are they. So much crammed into one heavy box. The feature button to re-spin the first ree...
