Re: Bally Money Tree

I've had 3 or 4 Ballys but sold the last two I had, some years ago. Electrical issues in general tend not to be areas of expertise for some active posters on the site, including me so I generally leave it to more experienced posters to chip in and help you. I know you mentioned lighting. Maybe if yo...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

No idea of those prices I'm afraid.

Had a very short and difficult to hear mobile call
from a friend who was attending. He did say it's
taking some time to get thru the lots too............

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I'm not going to the EH auction but if I were, it would be interesting to have seen the buyer mix. Obviously the EH has not had an auction for a year and don't have the usual batch of same old spares lots... A number of items for non coin op dealers and buyers. Even the Sun is out this weekend for t...

Re: Bollands Drunkards Dream

Hope it's all good when it arrives over here for you. If it is, sounds from replies here that you can keep for yourself and enjoy a while, then if you decide to sell would make a tidy sum - always a good position to be in.

Re: Jubilee Riviera

Well Rocky, You can see from BrianH's Pictures that your machine has an incorrect combination of artwork/award cards. It is possible that your reel bundle is correct for the top, or lower artwork or for neither of them. Once you can confirm whether the reel bundle matches a Colossus or not, it would...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Thanks GW, That's certainly the lower vendor casting of the EH pictured machine. EH machine combining this with the rarer non escalator top casting. It seems from the copy that there were a run of different model variants, so maybe it's one of those, or a later mongrel. I'm surprised the EH casting ...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Here's a couple of images of the same top casting with different lower casting. I found these this morning but cannot find the exact combination to that of EH, to try to find original model name unless it's a mongrel or special order?

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I've just seen the pictures of the 5c Bronze Chief on EH. I'm not exactly sure what this model is called.....? Looks like original $1/50c non escalator top casting option with vendor bottom casting? I've never worked on any of this model line, so appreciate more experienced knowledge. For me it fits...
