Spent many a week in the summer hols at Paignton BP back in the 1950s/60s, I was probably the snotty nosed lad in short trousers banging the machine whilst you were desperately trying to fix them in the back room.

:HaHa: ... I used to wonder what the hell I was going to find, and regularly spent the first couple of weeks in the windowless dungeon putting right what the part timers had inflicted while repairing them 'til they broke them properly.
The biggest pain was visiting the other arcades and spanner monkeys to try and buy back all the spare bits and tools that Uncle Gordon had sold on/allowed others to borrow or steal since I was last there.

BP :dammit:

The stripe went out of fashion around 1963. My Progressive Star (August 1963) looks similar to your repainted case. My case also needs a revamp. Don't store slot machines for more than a month in the bathroom!
Do you have any photos of inside and outside of your machine please it would be really helpful. I am wondering if these mechs have a Sega Special Award token payout fitted as standard to pay the 3 x Star Award or would this have been an option?
