Phew...

Had I known you back in 2003, Gameswa, and the eventual destination of this tasty allwin, I could have left it for you in Los Angeles and shaved 4,000 miles off the odyssey. :burp:

Sadly there is just too much invested in this to make it worthwhile shipping back to the UK for anybody. :!: Somebody is looking at it in person the next few days, either for himself (long time operator and collector) or for a customer of his, another long time operator who wants some history! So does seem fit that it might get back to it's original roots in a way. :D I'm broke so the cash is badly needed.

Well I have found another theme for collecting, buying machines from your local arcade from when you were young.....Really fancied this Double Six, but as Gameswat mentioned to me, it would have cost a fortune to buy and ship to the UK.....by chance a week ago a Hawtins came up on Ebay and I happened to notice the same badge on top for Canvey Casino......Had to have thisn !!THUMBSX2!! .....Now a proud owner and looks very original, even has original cash tray inside. The owner a lady in her eighties had had it many years and bought from the original family who owned the arcade....:-)

Well this is number 65, Gameswat's number 3, so another 63 to collect if they exist
