U-R slots. If you read back through the postings, you will find very good advice. The problem is you're asking for something that you do not adequately define. When you ask if the slot machines in the picture are any "good," what do you really want to know? Which ones you might like? Only you can decide that. Which ones are more valuable? That depends on too many factors to address, starting with the question of what the price being asked is. The community here at Pennymachines is extremely generous with their time and information. Much of what they dispense has been gained over decades of experience. If they appear a bit prickly, it tends to be when a newbie - that would be you - says, "Tell me everything you know but I'm not going to share what information I have that may be of interest to you." This is a community of mutual shared interest. If you truly want to be a part, start with giving the information you have as to where this collection is located and how to contact the seller. If you're not willing to be a partner in spirit and fact, then it might be in your best interest to move on to another group, or hobby.

Hey, Your-such-a-slot

Sorry, I have been away and only just got back in country. Ignore all the rest, I am the true genius on this site... and I'll tell you what, from the pics you posted of those machines... Not 1 of them is worth more than a tenner, fully restored, like new, may be a 50.. Forget it. They are not for you...

What a truly helpful and intelligent reply. No wonder this forum has a good name for helping people out... must be a definition of "true genius" I was previously unaware of. !PUZZLED!

Apart from a message I put up for about a minute this morning and then deleted as non-constructive, nothing was removed by mods or OP as far as I'm aware... !PUZZLED!

I would buy in the U.K. if your based here, as having experienced shipping many times from the US, it adds massive cost and risk. The last machine some would say is worth going for, the Horsehead Bonus, not my cup of tea always looked odd in shape, but popular with others and sell in U.K. on average for around £1500....

some people don't know when to go away when they say they are going to, the purpose of the latest set of photos posted being to prolong a thread which was exhausted long ago
