Machine Mart Chocolate & Spangles allwins identified

Postby treefrog » Tue Jan 03, 2012 7:53 pm

This Allwin sold on ebay before Xmas and I never got round to asking if anyone knew the maker of this machine. Unusual brass hardware, is it possibly Kraft??? Quite like the industrial look of it and appeared in good condition

It's a Shefras machine (Amusement Machine Mart) - one of an apparently large range of allwins produced from the '50s into the '60s, the two best known being Extrawin and Crackerjack. If you look closely at the 'unusual brass hardware' you'll see that it's standard stuff with the chrome almost entirely worn off. Given the need for re-chroming, I can't help feeling that the machine sold for a little too much.

Cadbury's top flash

Does anyone have a picture of this allwin they would be willing to share please so I can see what the top flash is meant to look like? I've never come across one of these anywhere before.

Thanks.

Clearly another Morris Shefras (Machine Mart) allwin, but not one I've seen before.

It's a nice allwin and has an unusual payout system in it. Not seen one before. It's on a strange angle, can't show it atm as the machine is stripped.

Allwin ID please

Can anyone identify this allwin please, or is it just a mix of bits ? At first I thought Ruffler & Walker, but now not sure. If it is a recognized allwin, is that top glass correct? Thanks in advance.

I've merged your query with the above posts, which provide the answers. If the top sign is screen printed on glass, it's right.
The example below does not have the correct top sign.

Spangles twins? It looks like I've just learned the source of Ian Fleming's inspiration for some minor villainous characters in one of his James Bond novels.
