The number 5 was for how many coins you got if you managed to land in one of the 3 holes. Underneath the number 5, when removed, was 25?

The main point was that you were looking for a Scandinavian coin that was 1 or 2 mm larger diameter than a 2p coin?

Sorted :) some strategic planning of a couple of pins and it's perfect.

Another example of Wilhelm Fürst's Henkeltöpfchen on German eBay - this one in a sorry state. The label reads 'Net Oorglaasje' which seems to be Scandinavian for 'Just Overlap' :!?!: Scandinavia was apparently a good market for Fürst.

For what it's worth : I own a 'Das Henkeltöpfchen' also called 'Oorglaasje' (1927, Wilhelm Fürst) and it works on the German 10 pfennings coin.

If you have one, I would be interested to see a photo of your machine, Christophe.

Hi Youngerap,
I'll do some digging in my hard drive for you, as the actual machine is currently dismantled in 100 pieces in my attic (the cabinet was covered with very thick coats of ugly brown paint, and I had it stripped).
Let me see what I can come up with (no promises!). Any particular part you are intersted in ?

Have a great day. C

Hi, Christophe.

Please don't go to any trouble. I really like these coin flicker games and just wanted to see what the completed machine looked like. But I see Mr PM has included one such photo on the first page of this thread. That will teach me to ignore the advice of my tutors of 44 years ago: "fully read the paper before picking up your pen...".
