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.
