Oliver Whales 24 Winning Cups: Anybody familiar with this?

Postby bamsefar1 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 12:49 pm

This machine was operated from the1950s until the 70s at George Brenner's arcade, Grand Pier, Weston Super Mare.
It's a big / nice machine.

Anybody who have input about production year and history?

I noticed on an arcade-picture on PM; with a another version of the "24" winning cups in the background.
The pictured version has an external topper, while the machine in question has this built in.
What would a realistic price on eBay be for a 24 Winning Cups in good condition?

Thanks :D

The 24 Cup machine was made from 1949 onwards. As to price???? It's worth what you are willing to pay :!?!:

I am aware there is a certain "relativity" when it comes to prices; but I a sure some of you have a bit more concrete estimate of fair marked-value of this machine. Are we talking £500-£800-£1000-£1200?

I would not go the high end you have mentioned, so probably from 450 to 650 max.

If you for discretion reasons would like to give a feedback in a PM, that's welcome.

The background for my inquiry is that I am offered this machine. I live in Norway, where there is no market for British allwins, as these mainly were imported by private enthusiasts over the year. Just a few models from the British islands came adapted to the Norwegian market. I know of two of these models: Cascade - dropcase and Wonders "Pools".

I think treefrog is about bang on the money with his estimate.

I would also agree with Treefrog at around 450 to 650 max, but that would also depend a lot on condition of mech and originality etc.
