I have a Buckley Big Cherry. I'm looking for background history plus any pictures as looking to repaint. Can anyone help?

In order to positively identify the machine, I suggest you sign up to the forum and post photos. Then we can all "ooh" and "ahh" before pretending to be clever and knowledgeable............

Another ebay sale but, although perhaps not the most sought after of machines, there is something really stylish about this Buckley 1D machine. It looks fairly original and in good condition and the top flash is great, with a nice bottom lit up light and great simple text.... Shame though the original stand/coin box is missing, otherwise it would on my wish list.

Not one you see often and strangely there is another on ebay at the moment, with the stand, cheap!

Buckley Big Cherry 1 penny slot

Postby wittmannj » Fri Aug 30, 2013 6:47 pm

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Today I got a Big Cherry 1 penny slot machine. I have other slots that are much newer but none that are mechanical like this one. This machine does work but needs some repair work on the outside. I have looked on the net for this machine but not been successful in locating one to see what they should look like, and also was wondering if I should redo the outside because the wood is peeling in places. I was trying to post a picture of it but I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
John !PUZZLED!

There are several ways of posting a picture. I saved it to my desktop by right clicking it and saving as .....
Then followed the upload attachment directly below the Posting a reply box.
There is a guide here How to Upload Images

The most common external missing part on these Buckley bandits is the payout tray, as with yours. This happens because these machines were made to sit on a stand which had the payout tray set in the top of it. Then for some odd reason they get separated.

Welcome to the forum it's always great to have newcomers, what other machines have you?

Hows come I can't find any info on these machines? No pics. Are they rare or just not very collectible?
Would like to restore it, but unsure what they are supposed to look like.
Also, what part of the machine spins the wheel? It do not always spin fast, sometimes real slow.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hi John and welcome to the site.

I suspect the answer's a bit of both - rare but not exceptionally collectible.
The International Arcade Museum's Big Cherry entry doesn't tell you much you don't already know.

I've merged some old posts above which show versions of your machine with a topflash and suggest its proper name may be Copper King.
As BP says, it seems this model was designed to be built into an integral stand.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I'm missing the front piece.

The slow moving reels may well be just that it's dirty. Clean all the old grease off and lightly oil the parts not involved with the coins and see what that does.
Photos of the mech please and we can help.
