Hello all,

I have been emptying my mother's house out and I have this Aristocrat Sheerline One Arm Bandit working on 1p. I don't know anything about it.

I would love to know if anyone can shed some light on it for me.

Thank you all in advance,

Jon

Splendid machine. Ideal for a beginner in the wonderful world of slot machine collecting.
Originally on Australian sixpence (which is the same as ours), and certainly worth converting back.
It still has the 'poker' reels, which is a bonus in Britain; they mostly have Mills-type fruits.
Is it all in order? All the help you need is here, you only need ask.
Do you have space for more than one machine? You'll have about six by this time next year.

Welcome to the forum …….
TreeFrog will be along at some point, he loves these …… to the point that he owns all the others ever made and stores them at the top of a castle turret somewhere secret.

Thank you guys, this is a massive help.

@brigham Thats very interesting to know about the poker reels, and the conversion to 1p from 6p. My brother decided he wanted to play with the insides when he was younger but all the parts are there, they just need putting back together, I would do it but I just don't have the time.

@badpenny Thank you for the heads up...secret place to hide them haha...I look forward to hearing from him.
