Re: Auction today

Ridiculously cheap, would have bought most of these at that price, especially the early stuff. Never seen the Argyle fortune teller. A well kept secret auction! Think the seller should be disappointed.

Re: Unusual UK conversion on a Jennings

I think ill informed, they believe they are buying original machines. If they knew the nostalgia machines were made in China don't think they would touch them

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

I have one which has been in storage for fifty years in a hotel.
The previous said they thought that it had been purchased new along with another Brenner machine in 1966. So it had only been used for four years. I found accounts for the takings in the cashbox.

Re: J & M Triomphe + Schülke Loreley shooters

Thanks for the great info and pictures. Does not look like I will be finding a gun any time soon!
Love the coinslot with double slot, don't think I have seen another for different size coins for the same value.

Re: Early shooter by New Polyphon

I do have a shooter which I presume is German but made for the British market, as on old penny, and has the word light on the gun slot casting. Any connection to yours? I am looking for a gun or a picture of one for this.
