Thanks Jeremy for the information.
Have you considered placing that Roman Head in the Market section here?
If it's the one that was on eBay, I'd have gone for it without question.

Re: Silver Jubilee - Restoration....

I spoke to Henry Powell a while back, lovely guy, and asked to have the machine converted from 6d to 20p coins which will cost around £90, which sounds appealing. It sounds APPALLING!

Re: Silver Jubilee - strange payout?

We in the slot-machine fancy are the guardians of British culture, as far as our traditional money is concerned.
The stamp-collectors believe that they fulfil that role; they do not.
I recently heard one pronounce "Three Ha'pence" as "One and a Half Old Pee".

Were they British 'tanners' or Australian?
I wouldn't expect lemons on the middle reel, otherwise people might expect a payout from three lemons, which would be unheard-of.

Re: Dozer pusher

What's the general view of converting 'decimal' machines to old money?
I'd love to have a Jamieson's BINGO on Old Penny, but it simply didn't exist at the time.

JP, yes good spot about the missing pins, why else would they have been removed? Looks like he has a wider two part mustache strangely? !PUZZLED!
