Re: War Eagle - reproduction or not?

Two ways to check if the machine is a repro. First the castings will have slag bumps in the inside corners due to cheaper sand casting instead of investment casting. The other way is the jackpot check plate is solid, not removable. Too expensive to make that part seperately now.

Hi,
Sorry for my ignorance, but which part is the "jackpot check plate" ?
(could it be, by any chance, the small corner-shaped vertical plate on the front casting of the machine, to the right of the jackpot window, and which looks like a cover or something ? If so, you have juste solved a mystery to me : have always wondered what this was for ?!)
