Our machine looks very much like the Roll a Road with the same style of cut-out for the back drop, but with Super Steer a Ball instead of Roll a Road. The graphics are quite simple and semi abstract, but with a traffic light roughly where the road sign is. The coin release mechanism is all mechanical.

Mystery Steer-a-Ball bit

I am working on a JP Steer a Ball at the moment and found this mystery part in the cash compartment.
It looks as though it could be part of a winning ball return mech.
Did they have them?
Have you a clue on where/how it might fit?

Crackle Finish

Thanks very much for the tips. The crackle finish is very good all round with the exception of the top and on the edge of the base. I will go for trying to touch in with the paints suggested.
