Re: Shortages having a knock on effect for us?

I have only used shippers twice in the U.K., shiply once and UPS once, one in Scotland and one in Northumberland. Other than that I always collect, for me part of the joy :cool: One of my biggest runs was picking up 5 items, from Coventry , Liverpool to Bristol, to Exeter, then onto Slough and back ...

Re: Mills console handle

Lotta posts not getting answered these days, but I cannot help and never owned a Mills console, other than a late Bell O Matic. The one member who should know is Clubconsole, perhaps if he does not see, give him a ping. |/XX\|

Re: Caille Commercial

You must have come across the long thread and I am sure this will be linked in at some point, [merged above - Site Admin.] but if you follow you will see there is not a definitive answer.

Re: Caille Ben Hur

Ahhh Elite auctions, what did it go for… Not sure it is a Ben Hur. If you follow the thread on Caille Commercials you will see many similar examples.

Re: Aristocrat Gold Star with cards on reels

It was not originally a gold star as these used fruits. They are stickers over the original strip. The crown you have shown usually would have a sticker associated with some instructions regarding often percentage payouts, so vary... Most are gone and I never replace them… make something up...
