PM, just going through my hardrives for some BMCo pics to email a friend and came across this rear photo of the same style flat topped marquee frame! And obviously the real deal as even correct brackets. Posted by you, no less, back in 2013. Re: Mirror sign

Is that a frame you own, and what machine did it come from??

I am pretty sure the top marquee frame was original and used the same mounting brackets as shown. Just the top horizontal wood part was missing which I remade. Remember this was a "giant type allwin" and maybe suited the small marquee.

That was my thinking - the game would be huge with one of those tall marquees.

Ha! I'd forgotten about that one. I'll try to dig it out tomorrow. From memory, I think I bought at the EH, unfortunately sans signage. The brackets were the main attraction, and I remember wondering why it wasn't the standard '30s BMCo. design.

It's unfortunate, but not surprising that all four surviving BMCo auto-prize allwins we've seen have lost the top signs.

Actually, there are six surviving BM Co auto-prize allwins. I have two. No top signs on either.

I will put it on my "to do" list, Arrgee. Currently, they are shrink wrapped and packed away in a remote site.

Now that I think about it, I wrote an article on "sweets" allwins which is archived in the Arena. The name of the article is "Hey Sailor! Wanna Treat?" It is at the end of the list in the Arena. The article includes two pictures of the large prize allwin, Lucky Star, including a shot of the interior mechanism. One of the two pictures is the one posted above.

So that reduces it to five known examples. Is the unpictured one the same as Lucky Star?

As suspected - no signage:
