Mills Official Pinball

Postby coppinpr » Sun Feb 02, 2014 6:02 pm

I underbid on this "Mills Official Pin Ball" and it went for £131. I'm guessing it's worth more than that. Anyone know its real worth?

I've had a couple of these, and I think that's all its money.

The last one I sold at Coventry went for about £110.

Hi guys,
I have got a Mills Official table top pinball. Currently it has 8 steel balls, but I believe it should have 10 balls - 9 white and one red. Does anyone know if these can be purchased and the instruction card mounted at the front? This machine is a very small counter top unit on old penny play.

I was the under bidder on this machine and there is a photo and thread running about it at the moment (called "Did I miss a bargain"). BP says he's had a few of these so I'm sure he knows all the answers (he always does. :D )

I've also sold a few of these over the years, including one last November at Coventry which went for £95. There are four others recorded in the Arena, one went for £35 at the Elephant House in June last year and another in Coventry 2009 went for £90. The other two were no sales. None had the instruction card.
This is what it looks like, American and English style.

I've put a couple of cleaned up versions in Resources.

There should be nine chrome balls and one red one. I don't know how you'll obtain this short of some fancy electroplating which would surely be a bit OTT.

Interesting upright Mills version. I quite like this.

Any idea of the exact size the steel balls should be? Mine look small, but could be correct. This is a rainy day project, although it does work well. Not bothered of cost and re-sale value, I got it 'cause I like it.
