Re: Bunch of Aristocrat Nevada Machines For Sale

I think they've been boggered around with too much for collectors. The amount of work required to return them to unmolested condition is not insubstantial. And would include sourcing very rare bits of escalator made out of unobtanium. If an operator wants authentic looking old bandits with shiny bit...

Crow River Trading in Americaland used to be the place to pester for such things, however I remember them closing.

Re: Mills (High Top?)

Downsides are the obvious re-paint & the chip board cabinet. The upsides are it looks all original, including cash box & rear door, which are often missing. Do you have the key? If it's an original Mills lock that will also help the value. It looks like a good project for somebody, I would ...

Re: Barrett Test Your Twist

I've now come to the conclusion there are various values for every machine, each as valid as the others. 1 - How much any individual is prepared to pay, for personal reasons. 2...
