Squires & Corrie

Postby badpenny » Sun Jul 11, 2010 2:45 pm

Somebody was recently asking about (I think) where to get a Mills badge to go on the front right of the reel window? I can't find the thread now.

I've just come across these people Squires & Corrie, they don't appear to be mentioned anywhere on this forum according to The Search facility (Go on prove me wrong)

Never come across these guys before, but wow.....unless I am absolutely desperate, I doubt I will use them..... have you seen their prices? And that excludes the shipping costs to the UK.... I recently bought a bag full of denominator badges for $6 - 8 of them, and they are after $35 for one and, even worse, $300 for an Aristocrat coin escalator....!PUZZLED!

Moved & merged - Site Admin.

I've just come across this lot ….
Squires & Corrie

Just because I've never heard of them doesn't mean anything of course.
They've got some interesting stuff albeit at the "cost is no object" end of the market.

Must be a 4 year cycle to remind yourself how to use the Search Function......see [above] and your previous comments.....

I still stand by my comments :HaHa:

Well you guys turned out to be a couple of newbies, guess you skipped slot history classes. I thought it was a well known company, been around 40+ years. S&Q were some of the first doing high end restorations to gambling machines, based in California because the law became favourable in the later 1970s there. Lots about them in the '70s and '80s coin-op magazines, adverts and articles etc.

Not sure what BP’s excuse is, but I guess I had been in the business 18 months at that time, also it was nine years ago and my bodily functions were all in tact then and was on a fast learning curve.......it seems to be leaking now :#:

From what I had seen over the years, I always got the impression they (Squires and Corrie) had a tendency to perhaps over restore items and put their stamp on them (of course apart from the badge they often applied)

I remember years ago going through their website looking at the spares and with no search function, it takes ages to get through for example Mills spares.....I looked at these 9 years ago and mostly the same items are for sale, obviously due to the prices, which is a shame as there are one or two things that would useful..... $350 for Jennings or Mills clock made me chuckle....wonder if you get a machine free to go with it..

Am I right in thinking we saw one of their Jennings Little Dukes offered for sale on this site some years back?
It had been restored within an inch of its life with space age paint and colours and sported a price akin to a phone number.
