Oh noooooo, I am such an anal collector every nut has to be inline along all sides.

Seriously though some of us do care on the models made by companies and what they should look like. I happen to like Aristocrats and this is why I will point out these things. For me it is important to obtain correct machines for my collection; that is the way it is and will not change. For those who don’t care if Mickey Mouse is painted on the front of their machine, that is their choice. I reckon a lot of serious collectors are no different to me. !!THUMBSX2!!

I know sometimes I leave excellent Kingsway/Nevada/Governor badges on a front door even if they're not the correct badge for the model, but one of the other options, as in trying to prise it off I may well just damage an otherwise excellent example of an original badge.

I'll leave it on and if the buyer is not bothered and happy that it's in great condition (and not many are) then it can just stay on. There are other options for a buyer who must have the correct model badge.
