Charles Ahrens "The Executioner" Working Model

Hello Fellow Collectors,

I'm curious to see how many different cabinets Charles Ahrens used in making some of his Working Models. Particularly The Executioner. I recently found this interesting styled cabinet. Has anyone seen this style before? :!?!:

Re: Working Model

Thank you slotalot for your infinite wisdom. !!CHEERS!! I was torn between Kraft and Bolland, but Bolland and his Claw/Digger machine cabinets makes perfect sense. This is the best Coin-op site in the world. !!YIPPEE!!

Re: Working Model

Thanks Jingle for bringing us back to the topic. !!THUMBSX2!!

I have yet to see this "Amazing" machine in action and I do not know all of its functions. Fakirs are Indian holy men who posses powers (or you could say magicians), so I assume there's a few tricks being performed.

Re: Working Model

Thanks Badpenny for your reply. The second photo is a side view. Both sides have the same "Indian Fakir" marquee/sign with the front having the "It's Amazing" sign.

Re: French Horse Race Game

Thank you Coppinpr for the much needed information. I had no idea that it could be that old. I assume that these games only had 1 horse per lane as opposed to others that I've seen with as many as 6 horses per lane. It would be great to see a complete machine to find out what I'm missing. Thanks aga...

French Horse Race Game

Hello Fellow Collectors, I hope someone here can possibly identify this machine I recently found !PUZZLED! . I'm also looking for someone who might know where I can find some parts. I've seen similar games/machines but not in this style table. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :!?!: Cheers, Tod
