treefrog looking at some of your posts you must have a boatload of machines
It would need to be a container ship, as I think Tom keeps some in a container already. :lol:

Needless to say, it's not easy to photo that glass but here are a couple of attempts.

I have worked on the basis cheap ones with glass always come along. I have bought two cheap ones at £33 and £100 with glass but mech issues and poor or non existent cabinets. I recently bought a cracking one missing its glass, voila you suddenly have one good one with glass....not something your likely to get hold of in Canada of course..

One with glass and cabinet I think sold for £100 at the last Coventry auction, I tried to bid on it, but the auctioneer I think saw through me eyeing up a nice pint of London Pride

Looking at that one maybe the front on the one that sold high wasn't altered like I thought.
Yours seems to be the standard format, with no piping around the edges. The cabinets on the other two are also different from each other.

In case you haven't found it, there are several posts on this Danish blog about restoring the Rotomat Jewel.

Thank you treefrog and pennymachines for your posts.

I am waiting for copies of the instruction cards and maybe the duo / mat graphics.

What does it say on the little ribbon sticker on the left (our right) of the bottom of the circle?

"Oben Angezeigter Betrag" - literally, "Above Amount Displayed", i.e. when the ball stops over the green section, the machine pays the amount indicated by the arrow.
That mirror paint looks like it could work for this job. Not an easy task though... The 'yellow' stripes etc. are a sort of matt gold.

Thank you for the reply pennymachines.

Having a closeup look what I was asking was for the writing on the arrow.
I thought it was a ribbon and didn't realize it was an arrow till I got a closer look.

On the originals: "Geldeinwurf" (Coin). On the example above, "Insert Coin Here".

Nearly £860 and over £1 per play. :shock:
If it was on Loonies instead of Toonies then that would befit the buyer. :lol:
