Here is the machine pic:

Here is an empty box. Going to start to refinish. Adding new wood:

On the third pic that is the one showing the front. There is a little round tray with a butterfly nut on top that holds something - looks like tokens or coins. What is that used for?

Just a hit in the dark, would anybody be selling one of these front pieces?

Yes, that looks like a token vendor, although I am unclear for what, as the award card does not indicate what win would get a token. The front piece may be tricky, although a really rough machine may come up, unless someone here has one.

Eight years later...
...I've come up with a pair of Big Cherries (!), both with the floor-standing cash box/payout tray.
They are both on Old Penny, but one of them still has the 8-10-12 payout of the original Copper King.
Which to me suggests a possible de-upgrade, back to Copper King format.
Does anyone have a decent scan of the Copper King glass, good enough for a professional artist to re-create it?
