Readers Lives'

Reading through some posts the other day I found one from a member questioning why we seem reluctant to put photos of our collections on here. I am going to rectify that by posting a photo of my small collection and I will wait for the many fantastic photos to appear.
I did have many more but fell out of love with slotties for a few years and sold most of my machines. These are the ones I couldn't part with. When the lockdown came and I dug out the grey Beromat in my photo, which was sitting forlorn in my shed and I'm hooked again. The Jupiter is my favorite but it needs a new glass if anyone has one.

I can see why some people might be reluctant to post their collection online, maybe because it's a tight circle and they don't want people randomly propositioning them for their machines? But where I come from (the pinball scene) showing off a collection is a point of pride.

For example, I am SUPER MUCH looking for a copy of NSM Super Match, so if you ever thought you could part with that, send me a message. :)
(same for Jupiter, but I know no one is selling Jupiter...)

Here are some of my machines!

4 Japanese machines (3 incredibly rare ones from the 1970s, 1 from 1950s) and 3 American ones from the 1930s:

2 British machines, 1 German machine, 3 Japanese machines, 6 American ones:

pinball from 1955 to 2018, plus a Skill Roll from 1958 (American)

and I also collect a lot of arcade artwork...
