At least they haven't knocked on your door and sold them back to you one at a time ( like they did to one of our well known esteemed operators)
I said this to my partner last night, the only person I know around here who would buy them is me :HaHa:

Re: Stolen Machines

Ah, thank you. I’ve always got alerts on for vintage penny machines👍 I’m struggling to understand where they would expect to sell these without leaving a trail back to themselves. It seems unlikely anyone with an actual interest in these machines would also happen to be a burglar, so it appears to b...

Re: Stolen Machines

Hi,

Thank you, there is a crime number it is: 21000629713.
A few other things were taken; however, nothing I’d expect to turn up and be identifiable.
I can’t imagine these machines would stay hidden from collectors for too long as most of us are all on here.

Re: Stolen Machines

Unfortunately, they are not marked with a postcode; however, some do have their unique age marks, a fair few of them I’ve never seen for sale before or since. It’s a long shot, but I thought it would be worth letting the community who are interested in these machines know if, by chance, they come ac...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Oddly enough, the seller of the above machine from Skipsea was in fact the very same chap who I was buying the bandit from in the first place that told me of the fake Mother Shipton that was doing the rounds, this led me to this site in the first place. In all fairness, I could only say good things ...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Thank you very much for that. That is fantastic if you ever want to sell these please do keep me in mind. Or alternatively, if you wouldn't mind reproductions being made then feel free to get in touch and we could perhaps come to a deal on that? I would love to be able to fill the machine with the o...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

The large plate at the bottom is behind glass, my best guess from the look of it is it's made from wood.

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

This is correct. I have included a close up of the manufacturers name at the bottom. I was unsure of the maker as the plate above is from a different company but with this new information it is all falling into place now.

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Thank you so much for your reply. You are 100% correct, the dealer did have a very large collection that he'd sold in 2000, which was reassuring that this was the original. I just wanted to clear this up as another dealer looked at a picture of the machine and was unsure if it was the fake or not. I...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Thank you very much. That is greatly appreciated. When I learned there was a fake going around, I was concerned but I’m very relived to have the original:-) I do have one card that fits which I believe to be from a palmestry machine that was also made by the same company at the time. The card measur...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Thank you for your reply.. I do believe it is the very same machine and have to say that is a relief...I picked up a bandit yesterday and the seller was telling me about a fake version doing the rounds and I was in a bit of a panic that it could be mine... On another note, if anyone knows where one ...

Re: Coin operated fortune teller on ebay

Hello, I’m new to this website and have really only just started building a vintage arcade collection. I’m a little concerenend that the second picture posted on this thread is a machine I bought! (The one with the faded ‘H’ on the word ‘has’) I’m by no means an expert on these type of things but I ...
