1930s Atlas Grip tester restoration

Hi everyone - finally taken possession of a 1930s Atlas Grip Tester. It looks to be complete except the back door and coin box, if it even had one. I can't wait to begin restoring it.

Re: 1930s Rebound pinball identified

Thanks again for the reply.

Re: US Marshall's Shooting Gallery

Thanks for editing the post what did I do wrong?

Does anyone else own one of these? I only know of two in Australia. Mine's in far better condition. I'm just wanting to find out what is drawn on each target?
