Re: The ones that got away

Amazing isn't it how some folk simply have no idea what they own. Guess it happens across all collecting hobbies though.

Re: The ones that got away

Good banter Cheeky, Tree-Frog,
Yes, my bad grammar, apols..

Re: Middlehurst Coronet

Cheers Rory, (Hi Badpenny), good to know you're still slotting over there in the West. Recall you have (had?) a very broad collection. Yes, you're correct, I tried to sell my entire collection of 21 machines but ebay booted them off, and Trading Post & Gumtree had no luck so they're still sitting he...

Re: Arcadian Bonus

G'day from Melbourne, Oz, Badpenny et al, Your 'Dream Bandit' with a crown on the belly, could it be the Middlehurst Coronet (first version) as in Ladwig's book on p56??

Interesting to read about the old machines in NZ and reference to others in Australia (where I am). Only know of a couple of serious 'slotties' out here, some awesome stuff tucked away.. My col...
