Re: What did I buy?

I see you have already disassembled the cabinet from the castings? What marks are stamped on the inside of the lower front casting? Do reelstrips have 777s? Mechanism is likely 100% Sega but reelbundle and/or reelstrips maybe Mills? It's going to be quite hard to find a matching backbonnet to your t...

Re: What did I buy?

You can check the inside of the castings for serial number marks for either Mills or Sega or a US revamper from 50s/60s. You can do the same for the mechanism parts too. Reproductions may have no marks though... In the UK, many many hitops are mongrels, e.g. parts from different origin, bolted toget...

Re: Bally electro mechanical 200 coin jackpot restoration

I emailed you details of a guy in Germany who had many original high jackpot payout belly glasses plus reel glasses and top signs for Ballys. He may (or not) have items now, as it's been few years since I dealt with him. However, I sent you a link to a live listing, so at least he is still around......

The handle in comparison to reels is very low. Maybe this shortens manufacturer options?

Re: unusual Bally machine

Here's a video of a similar Bally Circus model: https://youtu.be/UZurHeI4q7o?si=7UoiwLuxiL5X_QZj I was told many years ago that Denmark and Sweden were very important export countries for Bally for their E/M slot machines through late 60s and 70s and even later.

Jennings Galaxy Rarer 50 Cent Model Identified

First time I've seen a large coin (50 cent) model within the Jennings Galaxy line. I've seen 6d, 5np or shilling plus I've seen 2np but never 50c/old penny slotted into a Jennings Galaxy cabinet previously.

I'm not sure it's a "Constellation" model Paul? Although there is only one picture, so harder to pin down, I've generally heard that model classed as 'Continental"? Introduced to try to buy Jennings more time v Ballys being introduced as unlike the Governor/Chief/Standards, the Contin...

Henry Powell will sell you an original NOS black strip with Aristocrat printed in gold in the centre.
Google '1 Armed bandit', if you are interested. He had a box full of them.

Re: Rotating escalator Aristocrat Tic Tac Toe

Hi, If it helps, I can ship you original rotary levers to copy from. You would have to pay shipping and I am afraid a sizeable deposit, due to being shafted last year when doing similar & never receiving original parts back (not from a member here, I would like to point out). Anyway, offer is th...
