Ruffler & Walker Allwin List

Postby cheeky » Mon Mar 05, 2012 12:46 pm

I was looking specifically at R&W sweetie allwins. I have been hunting through various books and magazines to find out about these machines but to no avail. I wonder how many and what types of R&W sweetie allwins were produced? I have fond memories of playing them at Clacton and from what I can remember there was an Aero, Penguin and a Spangles one. Were there others? Any photos, appreciated.

Come to think about it, what about their other machines? A definitive list of all R&W machines. Now I'm getting excited!

OK, to get the ball rolling... rather than merging all previous R&W posts into one unwieldy thread, I've just copied over the pictures. Please post your R&W sweety allwin pics here.

So, we can add to the Penguin, Aero and Spangles 'Win A...' series: Rowntree's Fruit Gum, Wrigley's Chewing Gum, Gift (very tidy one sold at Sunday's Elephant House auction) and Dairy Milk Chocolate (sold one many moons ago).

The best known R&W allwins (manufactured by B. M. Corteen Ltd., also trading as Advanced Automatics of Erith, Croydon, London) are Hat Trick, Earth Satellite and the multiballs: Fill Em Up, What's My Line, Many Happy Returns and Yours To Be Won.

Wow, that's great. I didn't know there were so many sweetie allwins. The Wrigley's chewing gum is very nice but no topflash. How unusual! Love the Nestles one by Daveslot.

The Yours To Be Won Ruffler and Walker allwin is a confusing one.

I've heard it countless times and the one on ebay at the moment states it also,

"ONE OF ONLY TWO MACHINES KNOWN TO EXIST, THE OTHER KNOWN EXAMPLE WAS FORMERLY IN THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE JOHN CARTER AND WAS SOLD IN AUCTION IN 2000."

But I've seen more than two in my time. There was one in Coventry I believe as well?

So how many of these are really about?

It is usually the SELLER that cites the rarity value. There was a time that I thought all machines were called rare something or other!!!! A much misused term IMO.
