This nice looking example on ebay of the electric payout Flash Win went unsold, no bids at £375 reserve.

Came across this thread when trying to identify an Allwin`s guest appearance in a 1973 episode of Last of the Summer Wine. To my inexperienced eye it looks identical to the Double Your Money machine previously posted. The one in "The Star Inn" had a neutral patterned top flash but an identical play flash, separate controls and a replacement cash door. Pity that it seems no definitive manufacturer can be accredited.

I am sure some you you saw this at auction in Wales with a bunch of other machines. I by coincidence happened to be in a nearby town and popped into the auction and came away with the below Plentywin, unloved as were the other machines someone I understand was selling from a clearance. It has cleaned up well, but main not of difference is the lower cabinet with the non flush base almost Parker’s by design. Not seen another like this and the base is original.....

I am hoping to get one of each of these, two more to go !!THUMBSX2!! That I know of that is

Strangely, there's another of these at Eastbourne auctions this month, albeit incomplete.

!WHOOPS! I used to groan when you did that. !SORRY!
It will be very cheap because it's very incomplete... :woops:

I only wanted the case as you say nearly all the internals have gone or been replaced with dodgy parts

About a month ago, a modern looking flasher sold on eBay which at the time I thought looked like the basis of an older machine and when reviewing again think this was by the same manufacturer as the machines in this thread. The Love Machine although full of modern parts has similar lamps to the Cyclone, case shape to other allwins and same Bryan’s style hinges. Was very cheap at £100 as well

I looked at that at the time. If I'd read this thread earlier, I'd have bid. I think the 'module' providing 'retro sounds' (?) put me off.
I have a Jackpot, with the distinctive control panel casting. In the light of what we now know, can we safely credit it to Philip Shefras?

I think so, for the reasons outlined on page 7-8 of this thread.
This little image from the Cash Box trade paper February 20, 1960 shows Philip Shefras (left) at his Philip Shefras (Sales) Ltd. ATE stand. There are two allwins behind. To my eyes, the one on the left appears to have the distinctive bowed top frame above the playfield.
