hi mark, a 25c machine will operate on an old 5p/ 1/- quite happily, the present 10p usually works ok, these are slightly bigger and sometimes you need to open the coin entry slightly

Yes, I have never seen one with a live jackpot, they have always been false ones. They used any old mech that was handy. I have seen them with Jennings and Watling mechs.

The castings on the Black Beauty are all Bollands - nothing remains of the Mills, also the mechanisms usually used are Poinsettia type mechs, or earlier, therefore they're pre jackpot or in the case of the Poinsettia a differing release.

Hi, is this it? They are either made by Ruffler and Walker or supplied by them, they could also be made by Kraft.

Parkers were a large manufacturer, I can't see them recycling Bryans machines. If you look at the chrome surround it is different, there is no aperture for the Elevens sign. Also have you noticed the clown graphic, looking a bit like a Pilwin?

you are right, this is a typical 1930s german machine ,probably by j&m, updated by olly whales in the 40/50s. it would have been a felt back and probably a token payout. still a nice machine
