Great pictures and on the info on the drop shelf Allwins. There certainly are some weird and wonderful machines out there.

Different play but the same concept of the retracting shelf that drops the ball: Handan-Ni Bomb Dropper.

any idea what year this machine is from?
Or even what country it was actually made in?

Handan-Ni Ltd. London, 1919. "Bomb Dropper." There is speculation that this particular machine was made by a man who worked for Handan-Ni but not under the Handan-Ni badge.

There's an example of the earlier four cannon version of the Bomb Dropper in the Museum.

Here's Luna Park, companion allwin to Sitas.

These machines are reminiscent of Wonders Boomerang - almost impossible to win anything!

In Luna Park, that pocket in the bottom left, at the top of the tower graphic, looks actually impossible to hit.
