I have no experience on these machines but looks like could be a future/deferred pay flag window?

Others with more experience will be along with precise answer

it is a "future pay" feature window I believe and would require a matching mech,do you have the correct mech?

Thanks for your answers! :cool:
The machine has no assembly for future play. I think if it ever has one, it was removed long time ago. A sheet of paper was glued on the window.

I don't know if you need the reel strips but there is a copy of the 10-stop strips in Resources.

Here is a Watling gooseneck mechanism with a working future pay feature that is visible in the small window to the left of the first reel.

Much thanks for the picture! :cool:

I've got a lot of help from USA some time ago. Special thanks to CoinOpCollectorForum.com.

Meanwhile i rebuild the payout system to max 20 coins payout. It was reduced to max. 10 coins payout when it was converted for German post war market.
I cast the missing slides in brass (original was cast iron), drill the coin holes and reaming them "in packages" .

The future pay system was reconstructed by using a cast iron blank part for the "Finger" on the payout slides. The levers are forged steel parts.

Also a lot of work at the clockwork, i changed some gears...

Still some work, but it´s a beautiful machine :D
