Re: Cast Postcard Vendor

Unfortunately got out bid. Never seen one before. It had an enamel coin slot on 1d. The auction house said this was cast iron, but it had a sheet metal case with cast iron trimmings. Loved the Art Nouveau top flash.

Re: Mills Extrabell identified

I have just bought one of these off a chap who bought it off an operator in the 1970s. It was operating on 6d and had a 6d award badge screwed on top of the original 25c. The operator had also sawn off the front of the base so the winning coins fell into a large bowl !PUZZLED! so I'm presuming origi...

Reeman Dansie auction - Snappy fortune teller

Re: Rol a Top Birds of Paradise

This is in my local auction house, so was hoping to buy this very cheap :lol: but not now :HaHa: and no, it's not one of mine. Viewed it Thursday and told the auctioneer about the skill stops and GA trip missing. Could not check the rest as he would not let me take out the mech. The console is very ...
