Re: Charles Ahrens The FireFighters Working Model

Thank you Mr. Moonriver,

Your vast knowledge of Working Models is greatly appreciated !WORSHIPFULL! . I have seen a video of the Bellringers (I'm in love), but I haven't seen a Firefighers nor do I know what movements they have.

Stacey's Auction

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

I noticed an interesting coin operated cigar dispenser skill game in Stacey's Auction this week. Did anyone else see this machine? Is it cast iron, sheet metal? What/Who manufactured it? !PUZZLED!

Re: Automatc Shooting Gallery

I believe it did have blue paint at one time. Low 4 figures (U.S. dollar) is what my item is valued in the trade. I'm guessing this would not be an even swap. !SMARTY! !!CHEERS!!

Automatic Shooting Gallery

I have been offered this counter-top shooting gallery game in trade. I have no idea about this little gem nor have I ever seen one. Can anyone help identify and possibly some comparable sales? I hope I'm not violating any rules by asking its value. Thanks for the support.

Re: Cresset Pickwick Machine

Hi Dave, Thanks for your info. I agree the wood balls are too light. I'll have to look for an alternative. There seems to be a lot of brass throughout, making me think it might have been pieced together. But again, I'm not too versed on these. It's a great looking piece and I didn't realize how heav...

Cresset Pickwick Machine

Hello Everyone,

I recently found this beautiful Cresset Pickwick machine but I'm not too familiar with them. It came with a few wooden balls but I don't know if they are correct for this game. Any information would be very helpful.

Modern Enterprises? Play Boy

Hello my fellow collectors, A friend of mine just unearthed this interesting coin operated working model in Petaluma California. It takes an English Penny and looks like it's in an old gutted crane/digger cabinet just like a lot of working models. There's a 78rpm record player and another unknown re...
