I'm guessing from the bracket it may have been an Ever Ready 4.5 volt lantern battery which were very common at the time. There are modern equivalents.

Thanks! I'll see if I can gently clean the old art out of it and see whether it works. I found someone over there who can do the art work on archival laminated paper and then I can secure it to the back. I think that's as close as I can get.

Risking eviction from the EH sale yesterday, I removed the glass (to eliminate reflections) and took a couple of pics of the Strike 'Em for you. I also had to take it at an angle to further reduce glare and reflections on the flash itself. I've tried to correct this in Photoshop, but it will have introduced some distortions. Anyway, hopefully it will help. Click image, then click 'Toggle Size' to enlarge. Sold for £2,200.

Wow! I really appreciate it! That's some beautiful artwork. I'm going to have to see about getting it reproduced and installed... the bell too, mine is missing, although it shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement. That's a lot of money although that machine looks pretty pristine...
