Lovely machine, wish I'd kept mine now. A friend of mine bought one new off Ian Jamieson in the '60s for his café not realizing how noisy they were. If I remember right, they did a modified version that started after the first bet was placed. I operated one and the the noise just added to the authen...

Re: Penny pusher "Moonraker"
