Are you after a better image of the top artwork or what your asking is the actual plate. Only reason I ask is I have the same machine, but not a spare award card

Most of the Progressive Star machines disappeared in the early 1970s because the 3 stars was a non-payout award from the machine. The law was changed to the effect that all wins had to be paid by the machine. Prior to that, you had to obtain the services of a member of staff to pay the win and reset the meter with a key. The odds of getting 3 stars was 7999 to 1. That would mean that the meter would, on average, be showing 400. Add 100 to that and you were the winner of £12.50 on 6d play or £25 on a shilling play. Some of the Progressive Star machines were altered to become "Diamond Star 3 Jackpots" just by changing the first reel and fitting a thin payout finger - part number SG 9080.

In the mid 1960s, £12.50 was nearly a week's average pay and by 1970, £25 would seem about right if you worked your rest day or a Sunday in a week.

Hello, radiochrissie.

I notice that you are very lucky to have the meter in the machine. Mine had been covered up with body filler that took all day to chip off. There was a connecter between the coin escalator and the meter but that was missing because it was not compatible with the Shefras 5p (shilling) escalator/bent coin rejecter. I mutilated both ends of a spring (about 6 mm diameter) and hooked it up between the meter operating arm and the coin advance crank on the rejecter. It worked a treat and still does. My machine now runs on 20p coins and pays a jackpot of around £20 - £22.
