Hi Cheeky, You have an excellent multi-pay allwin produced by Oliver Whales starting in 1955. The backflash art is most engaging. These games are extremely reliable and fun to play. And Seasons Greeting from the USA, too!

Cheeky, Although the trigger (thumb hammer) does not look like the standard Whales piece, according to "Arcades And Slot Machines" by Paul Braithwaite (available from your friendly Site Administrator in the "library" section) this game is a proud offering from Mr. Whales in the mid-50's. Your game is a particularly gorgeous example. I have one that looks like King Kong took a liking to it before it got to me.

Definitely Oliver Whales, lovely looking machine, looks like it has had a sympathetic restoration in the not too distant past?

Possibly but not from me. Any views about the thumb hammer that John mentions?

Trigger looks fine and original to me. Did you get this in the Sailsbury auction as there was a nice restored one in there?

Yes that's the one. Are there any other allwins that are just as colourful?

Cheeky, You've started a great idea, searching for the most colorful allwin. As an offshoot, I've started a new thread in a parallel vein dealing with the HAND PAINTED ALLWINS. Come on folks, get out those digital cameras!
