Below is a coin operated game named "Dog Races." As you can see, it's a beautiful machine looking for identification. The owner is a long time American collector who has had the game for over 55 years. The game is currently set up to take the American quarter but the coin slide is adjustable and can accommodate sizes from other countries, including Great Britain.
Several distinctive features of the game are worth mentioning. It's a clock-wound/powered machine. You insert your coin, turn the handle to return the dogs to the starting gate, and await the winner. There is no dog selection feature. Pay-out is predetermined and occurs on the play AFTER you win; it other words, it's a future pay machine. The dogs race from right to left. This is a game that has worked for a living. It's now in well deserved retirement.
Full bragging rights to the one who identifies the maker. Posers in the past have suggested all possible American manufacturers as well as several British and German companies. Extra credit to anyone who has an advertisement or an identical game.
Don't disappoint me. I've told the owner that my Pennymachines brain trust is more than equal to the task. Let the contest begin!
