Love test card

Anyone seen one of these before? Currently for sale on Ebay, it's one I've never seen before and have no idea what machine would have dispensed such a card.

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Getting boring isn’t it? Yes Tom, it certainly is.......although I'm not sure 'boring' is the terminology I'd use. As in past years, our date was announced shortly after the November auction, i.e. last December. It's marked as provisional, being mindful of the shenanigans that we've witnessed in re...

Re: Cromptons Tip-Em-Off... HELP!

Thanks Stuart, yes that's what I need - but much bigger. If anyone has a machine that they could photo those two pieces of artwork for me, it would be much appreciated.

Does anyone have a Cromptons Tip em Off that they could photograph for me please? I need a high res picture, as I want to have the graphics printed. I'll be happy to post in Resources once I've prepared ready for printing.

Re: Annoying ebay listing

Of course, this will also eliminate Master Football etc. - no bad thing, in my opinion.

Also Gameswat, not sure what the post about the Extrabell means??
There isn't a connection. Coppin posted a reply to your original post, which included reference to the Extrabell machines, to which I responded and Gameswat confirmed - since when Coppin has deleted his post.

Below is a photo of a "Mills Takens" (usually called an Extra Bell) made in 1930......
