Atlantic Flyer identified & unknown machine

Post by robertlundin »

Hello
I just bought these two machines and would appreciate to know more about them. For instance what are they called, approximately when were they made?
Thanks in advance!
Robert

Nice finds!
The Atlantic-Flieger (Atlantic Flyer) was made by Friedrich Giese, Automatenbau Atlantic, Berlin in 1929. Details and images at Automatix-Club. You try to drop a bomb from the aircraft onto the target. Each time you play, the target shifts a bit to the left or right. A hit rotates the coin wheel for a payout.

I know nothing about the other one, but imagine it is also German.

Hey.

There were a lot of different Atlantic-machines on the market around 1928-1930. This was mainly the case because the Bajazzo (Clown) was banned by legal authorities.
A lot of manufacturers developed modifications for existing Bajazzo-machines. This was a lucrative business, because there were tens of thousands of Bajazzos just in Berlin.
Here are two ads from the year 1929 for Atlantic-machines. They were sold as stand-alone machine or modification for existing Bajazzo/Clown machines:

The "Atlantic Flieger" by Friedrich Giese was a stand-alone machine only and not provided as a modification:

The Atlantic (most versions) were patented by Giese under DRP472272:
