Bob,

The guy is called Simon from Simons Salvage or Sentimental Salvage in Port Douglas Queensland......seems to regularly have coin op stuff, but miles from anywhere

I'd suggest creating a museum arcade of sorts with these and naming it "The coin-op restorers NIGHTMARE!" !OMFG!
But you Aussies seem to be the most skilled and dedicated on that front, so expect to see all these in their former glory !!THUMBSX2!!

Thanks Tree, I managed to contact the bloke and nothing fairground related is for sale. The only thing of interest to me in the photos was that enamel Ahrens plate as I have two such punchers, and he also has one though. He's going to scan for me and I'm trading him other artwork from my archive.

Thanks Treefrog and Gameswat. I recognised the couple and other machines from almost forty years ago and whilst they weren't in the best of shape then, they certainly haven't traveled well since.

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.....
This, I believe, is a Modern Enterprises machine, with Leonard Insul figures, named 'The Opera Singers'. A very elusive machine - pretty sure none exist here in the UK.
Here's a picture I have, which I think may actually be the same picture that Bob has posted.
