American, British, French or German? We want to know about it.

The Ebay machine is a gem, as far as originality is concerned. Do you think it may have started out as a ha'penny machine? The coin slot itself looks to be original.

I have the same pictures saved on my hard drive. My only comment would be that I am more inclined to believe the artwork saying "Whales of Redcar" on it, to be original. :!?!:
ie top right and bottom left.

I thought the lower rhd also has "Whales Redcar" written above the eyeball? Or I could just be going blind in the eyeball!? :o

Yes, they all have the OW name on them, except the first one which has some writing in the same style as the one below it. I think they're all original and 'correct'.

Here's another 'Fair And Warmer'. I guess it makes sense they would advertise different content so you could have several in an arcade, just like the Mutoscopes.
