Re: Clacton-on-Sea - The Pier Bally Machines

Completely true, although in this case they were just belly glasses that were binned. Dozens of them!!! :-(

Re: Bally machine running on unusual coin

Re: Clacton-on-Sea - The Pier Bally Machines

This is a very old post but just to update you, I saw what must have been at least 50 belly glasses and award glasses branded Clacton Pier stacked in a lock-up on the pier.
