Salvage haul in Australia

Postby treefrog » Mon Jun 18, 2018 1:32 pm

For those already on the associated Facebook group, a guy posted a load of pictures of some fairly rough looking pieces, including punch bag, strength tester, love tester and merchandiser and other bits. Was intrigued if anyone recognised the Punching bag as it does not look like a Mutoscope, Mills, Ahrens Shefras etc....but did look like the Australian Durkin machine Bob posted on his thread !PUZZLED!


Edited as just realised it probably is a Durkin as the guy is called Simon from Australia. So one for you Aussies to pursue if you know him ;-)

Definitely a Durkin punchbag as I once restored an example and easily recognise it.

Post should really be renamed "Savage Haul in Oz". Think it has DD's name all over it!

What are you saying - that I like basket cases? :'( :cry: You know me too well.

I deleted Facebook - can someone send me a link?

Umm, the weather is so awesome in OZ that we usually store our prize collections outside................. :HaHa: "Ridden hard and put away wet!" would seem like the appropriate phrase here. That last machine appears to be a copy of the Stevenson and Lovett Nurse machine, looks like a devil head instead of the nurse, not that I've ever seen inside the original machine so what would I know!?

Yes, I thought it was a modified S&L Sweepstakes.

Yes that does look like a stuffed around with Sweepstake Nurse.
Can someone please send me the link to the site where this appeared please as this is the first I've seen of it?

Another item the same seller in Australia has posted a rather scary automaton, which looks like it is an old coin op cabinet, very deco.....

Lots of treasures down below for the hardy it seems

I'd suggest creating a museum arcade of sorts with these and naming it "The coin-op restorers NIGHTMARE!" !OMFG!
