1966 Royal Crown, Imperial Crown, Lucky Token

Post by josh down under »

Hi all,
I'm after a bit if help. I have just gotten my hands in my first slot machine and would like to find out some information on it. I believe it was originally from the UK but has made its way to Australia where it will spend its time. I would like to know the manufacturer of it. There is no writing on the inside, just a small crown on the internal parts. A lot of people have said its a Sega but all the research I have done I have never come across it as one. Also I am after a new light box glass the same one as it has on it but in new condition. If anyone knows a good place to try and look online I would appreciate it.
Thanks, Josh

I don't have access to my pictures via this tablet but this model is probably a sister machine to an Imperial Crown, so you may well find images and other info on the web if you search this forum and others using "Imperial Crown."

I'm sure others will chip in with info from a couple of previous threads too.

Yes, I was aware about the Imperial Crown models but still haven't had any luck on that either.

Thanks

I very much think you will need to make a new light box glass. This is easier than you might think and there are lots of threads on the forum. There was a recent one (Mr P. could you mark it here so it can be found easy) in which a new JP glass was made easily and perfectly.
There is much of the Sega about it for sure so I guess one of the clones :!?!: What markings do the mech parts have stamped on them?

In England I have probably seen this model more so in the token variant, e.g. non visible jackpot version, badged as Lucky Token with lucky token topbox artwork. I have seen a few badged Imperial Crown, none Royal Crown.

This is a thread on another forum that may or may not give some indications? Maybe? http://www.coinopcollectorforum.com/vie ... 408#p16408

Interestingly, I am pretty sure Sega did actually produce an "Imperial Crown" of their own within the later produced Windsor series with an electro-mechanical coin acceptor.

Take with a pinch of salt as few maybes in there!

Thanks guys.
I will have to check out these new links. Here is a picture I took of the internal markings. Sorry it's not that clear - had to quickly take it before I ran out for work.
Hey Coopinpr - what area was that post about the new JP sign? I have had a quick look but there are so many sections I couldn't find it, thanks.

I will check my box of award glasses, but doubt I have one as this is not that common a machine. Most Segas of whatever form have Sega written somewhere, casting, casing, badges, etc. All the Lite Up machines that do not, have nothing. Funny for some reason the topic on who made these came up before and I thought someone posted a picture of them claiming to be Sega. As usual my searching skills on this site is beyond use to a beast......

Are there any stickers on the right hand side with a name on?

Hey - no, there are no stickers in it saying a make of it. There is only a sticker on the inside and that's just saying the serial number date of inspection and the inspectors name. I will upload that below. On another forum that was posted above they believe it's a Sega copy and was made by the Manzi brothers - not sure on the company name though. That would be great if you could have a look. I would rather an original glass rather then getting a reproduction made if at all possible.

Thanks Josh
