I call them denominators, but have spent most of my life in the wrong ..... being a man I know my limitations.

In order to track down a suitable one it might be an idea to describe what kind of machine it's required to garnish.

Hi B.P. always a pleasure. I would be happy with any type as when I took my machines up to the day centre folks were trying to shove any old coin in the slot just to have a go, even though I had provided the correct coinage. I appreciate that the right one is better for the relevant machine, but some of the machines I have, don't usually have one and I am only doing it to protect the machines in the future should I take them again. (I had to keep opening the machines to fix coin jams, really annoying).

Hi MM,
The problem you describe is the curse of all vintage arcades operating on the original coinage. That and getting folk to understand the games - reading instructions is so old-fangled. Clive Baker's solution is to put day-glow, arrow-shaped printed stickers on them, with "Old Pennies Only" pointing to the slot. They don't match the look of the machine, but that's the idea - they stand out and help folk find the coin entry.

Re punters putting modern coins in machines instead of old pennies I have fitted little swinging discs in the coin chutes of mine which flip out incorrect coins down a separate chute into a box. I make almost as much with these as the legitimate coins. Its amazing what people will put in, even pound coins sometimes!

What with us being in the middle of the celebrations for the Winter Solstice and other Pagan rituals that keep Druids et al from their desks of commerce, not so well.

I have placed the details on one of those websites where chappies with white vans can mail back with quotes.
As soon as The Chancers who reply immediately trying to bully you into choosing them for only £225 have all calmed down and slithered back under their rocks I'll let you know.
Shouldn't be long now.
