Help needed to identify mechanism maker

Some time ago I aquired a Sega Lite Up type machine, which looked like one of the possible Sega copies, Berkley etc. The mechanism is exactly like a Mills/Sega, but a lot lighter.

Maiden in distress

How did this end up in a barn in Missouri, real shame. She has no idea what it is, maybe one of our helpful members on the other side of the pond would be interested. Trouble is you would never get it back to the UK, apart from the cost, it would be impounded for trying to import rare insects :mad: ...

The Slot-Tronic

This has to be be the oddest idea, a Mills Hi Top that is linked into a drinks dispenser, where you can exchange your wins for a Martini. This could reduce the queues at the bar, what a great idea.... :mad: "THE SLOT-TRONIC SYSTEM IS EQUIPPED WITH A BASIC SLOT MACHINE WHICH IS OPERATED, AS IS A...

Something that would be good on th...
