!SHERLOCK! Nice work Sherlock!

I bought a card giving "Palmist" Fortune teller, many years ago, which had three previous art works behind the current one. Which was a nice surprise.

Here's a Supreme Cup gleaned from another thread.

Like Widget's allwin (below) and Polaris' new machine, it has a simple plate coin slot (rather than the cast 1D slot, typical of Wonders), which helps to confirm this model was made before they produced that casting. I've added it to the list and look forward to seeing the restored machine. !THUMBS!

Nice looking machine. Way too far for me, but the Olly Whales backflash is a much nicer theme, if in good condition, unlike most. Maybe best to leave, as it looks great. !!THUMBSX2!!

I agree treefrog, the Jet Play backflash is attractive and I will at some point scan and tidy it for Resources. Wonders machines have more appeal for me personally though - I'm on a mission to collect them. :)

I started restoration on Supreme Cup and wondered if anyone who has one of these can help me out with some pictures of the backboard and mechanism. Mine appears to be a crudely made replacement and I would like to redo it closer to the original. Like the one pictured (gleaned from another thread), it has an extra hole maybe for a free ball, unlike widget's example which does not. I'm trying to make sense of mine as the hole is blocked and maybe of no use?

So I take it with this one you try and keep filling the central reserve hole with up to four balls to win the various FACE payouts ?

Music practice - what an offbeat theme! !PUZZLED!
The mechanics of the game mean the actual notes 'F-A-C-E' are shown in reverse order.
Like many late Wonders, it has really big payouts.

I would think that's possibly the case Gameswat, perhaps along similar lines to Win and Place. It sold at auction today so maybe purchased by someone here. £330 +commission. I would have bought if I was closer but was another £100 delivery, so too expensive.
