Re: Dropcase flick-coin machines

Dropcase machines was the norm for almost 50 years in Norway. Came in all kinds of variations; from fully mechanical to modern electronic ones. Here you see my collection; or most of it anyway.

Supplier of period glass?

Got a 40-50s classic allwin with broken front-glass. The piece of glass has an "organic"/ period feel to it, being pritty thick and uneven. A modern replacement would not be right.

Is it possible these days to get hold of pieces of glass with that "old feel"?

Re: Bradley Challenger and variants

I got my hands on a good condition early Challenger recently.
It lacks the upper locks. So I wonder if any of you have these for sale; or know what type / where to buy this?

Thanks for any help :tarah:

Re: Oliver Whales 24 winning cups: Anybody familiar with thi

If you for discretion reasons would like to give a feedback in a PM, that's welcome. The background for my inquiry is that I am offered this machine. I live in Norway, where there is no market for British allwins, as these mainly were imported by private enthusiasts over the year. Just a few models ...

Re: Oliver Whales 24 winning cups: Anybody familiar with thi

I am aware there is a certain "relativity" when it comes to prices; but I a sure some of you have a bit more concrete estimate of fair marked-value of this machine. Are we talking £500-£800-£1000-£1200?
