I have read this thread before and if you follow it you will find even more contradiction and confusion by those who at some point thought they knew the difference and were shown to be wrong.....what is clear is that many repro castings were done by people over the last 40 years. The one on eBay is 100% repro. Having Extrabell on castings or single cherry or double, old cabinet or new etc etc seems to be no assurance. Like the Golden Nugget this will go on I suspect.

I have just bought one of these off a chap who bought it off an operator in the 1970s. It was operating on 6d and had a 6d award badge screwed on top of the original 25c. The operator had also sawn off the front of the base so the winning coins fell into a large bowl !PUZZLED! so I'm presuming original. |/XX\|
The label on the back door is interesting - Jerry's Coin Repair went out of business in 1954, advert from the Billboard.
