Interesting machine do you know if this machine paid out winnings as a token? I have several German tokens that appear to be show a mug of beer.

Unfortunately the coin cup is broken and I wouldn't be too optimistic to find one
Thanks for the info PM. I haven't managed to get a good picture on the tankard so I tried as best as I could, just to have something on the plate make it better I think. I used:
The first three lines of a traditional German beer hall song:
Trink’n wir noch ein Tröpfchen,
trink’n wir noch ein Tröpfchen,
aus dem alten Henkeltöpfchen,
A friend of mine helped me with the right text on the instruction cards.
It hurts a bit to replace the velvet, but I had no option, it was broken.
I used red velvet, the right would be green.
I imagined it would come out nicer with that colour. Who knows maybe some of these machines where made in that colour.
The other machine has no damaged velvet and that won't be replaced.
