Re: Opportunity of the decade coming

How did the sale go today please. Sadly for me at the first looks, for me being all vintage bandit parts was not worth me going as i havent any one arm bandits yet. Also to me the advertising seemed to be a little hard to find as i missed the fact of the later machines and bandits which would have m...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

WHERE THERES A WILL THERES AWAY! I personaly myself wouldn't get too involved quoting laws. When peoples attitudes and thoughts change, things in life can happen over night. I am now in retirement and have seen it many times over my years. Even from goverments, once they want to really do something,...

How did you get to love vintage amusement machines?

I loved the old penny arcade machines right from about 5 years old. I remember my fascination when at that age we each year went camping at a little seaside holiday site on the East Yorkshire coast. One time my parents couldn't even find were I was when it was time to go home... They should have loo...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

Thank you pennymachines for your reply which was very well and clearly put. It's a shame nothing tangible as yet came of that meeting but probably helped put some foundations for the future. I personally are now sceptical about meetings of high officials, after being at a couple myself. They often c...

Hi badpenny it is nice to hear from you again...greetings! I felt my thoughts and possible suggestions donot need further comment except were you asked i dont know of any rights that other collectors have..in that, it answers itself. They have the right to sell, swap etc freely without hinderance, p...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

I am surprised at what you have wrote badpenny as i did 2 auctions with you and some bring and buy sales just over 15 years ago. I surpose you realise now who i am and that i am not new to this topic. Sadely i do not agree with your comments, as i feel we can do even less now than we could then, and...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

The trouble with large organisations including silly wrong laws is it takes groups to take a stance and stand up against them...think of all the changes of even minority groups who now have freedoms and dont want to be bullied any more! Perhaps the answer is a large group to continually pester these...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

I personaly am surprised at how many people on ebay seem to be paying the Gambling Commission when they want to sell, a so called one off selling licence for some of these very old museum piece machines. With old classic and vintage cars you don't need to pay any tax and soon need no MOT over a cert...

Re: Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

Mm seems some things are changing? Not looked into what you put PM but did notice no tax if prize is less than that staked ie a polo sweet allwin on 20p play should be ok? The packets of mint polos are 10 tubes a pound at many shops. Also excludes domestic use which is sensible. Penny type cranes sh...

Machines on 2p and 10p coin, and 20p coin?

Does anyone know, is it now OK to operate and use for the public 2p 10p and 20p coin machines. I asked a lady at an East Coast arcade and she said those didn't need any licence. Was she right about all 3 coins? I know 1p and 2p used to be exempt but not sure if any changes... Is anyone in the know?
