Re: Old penny price

Re: Automatic Sports Co. Cricketer at HutchinsonScott

He is right though; a large proportion of early coin op is dull to play. You wonder how operators ever made money. I guess life was much more simple then. :HaHa:

Re: Exacta lock picking

Your photo of The Exacta is too small for my eyes, ears, nose and throat. All I can distinguish is it's missing half of the track that runs the coin from the coin entry down to the gate. If you want to get a lot closer and even take it out of its case we might spot the problem. BP :cool: Looks comp...

Re: Exacta lock picking

Yes, I did consider myself. They wanted the lot cleared, but wanted too much money in my mind. The Clocks were really odd. I love ’60s Perspex stuff, but not sure about them. They looked like the bezels had been bent as well. The other German based Perspex machines just looked too crude to me, so I ...

Re: Hello - New member from West Sussex UK

Welcome Bob, I can’t help you with what was on Worthing pier, but on viewer front, they could have been both British and American variants. There are two members on the site (Coppin and Malcymal) who have shared memories of machines in Worthing pier, if you do a search you will see some of the resul...

Re: Spitfire Allwin

Not a Spitfire, but another homemade Allwin, the Seven, with what’s look to be an identical door handle finished on eBay today. Not knocking people who make homemade machines and jolly good luck as they often look fun and an interesting hobby aside, but what I cannot get over is this fetched £720......

Re: Automatic Sports Co. Cricketer at HutchinsonScott

How many of these are left in this country? Only hope it stays here. Not sure about the colour, would of thought cricket pavilion green (darker) would be more appropriate. !OMFG!
