Hello Everybody

I'm a recent on this forum, I'm a French collector of French coin-op machines (sorry for my poor English).
I have recently bought a Circle Skill machine (coin return) but the "sticker" indicating the rules in front of
the machine is missing. I search an owner of this machine who can help me by sharing a picture of this item?
On this forum there are two subjects about this type of machine but I don't find my answer on it!
I link two pictures of my machine, if you want I share my home page about slot machines: http://lastcenturygames.free.fr/Mecanisme%20DRMAS.html
Thanks a lot,
Philippe.

Great. Thanks a lot for your answer, that helps me to complete my slot.
Another question, for the four holes how is the sticker explained the value you expect to win ?
As explained on the first answer to my post, this forum is a Great place for collectors.

Bonjour et bienvenue Philippe!
Well done Jimmy for coming up with the goods.
Jimmy - you say you want a picture of the complete insides. Is your mech different from Philippe's picture above?

The instruction indicates that the prize for each of the four cups is the same - a "coin and free ball for replay."

Incidentally, because this coin payout Circle Skill is such a different design from the Profit Sharer version, I favoured the notion that it might be German. Having compared it more closely with the Circle Skill Cigarette, I now think it's the coin payout version of that machine - presumably by Coin Operating Company of Birmingham. The unusual payout knob looks identical as does the knob which turns the wheel.

Thanks for this complementary information. In my version the two holes in the center pay a token of 50 centimes and the other holes pay 75 centimes for a drink of this value.
Jimmy tell me which zoom you want of the inside mechanism and I'll post it soon.
Fois night.

Looks like the simple allwin style coin payout mine had. The card says coin return, and you still have the brass payout coin overflow flap in place like allwins have. That wouldn't be there if the coins just had to drop out the bottom of a straight coin chute for a token payout. Since you're in the UK, it might be easier for you to wreck a crappy allwin for the parts as opposed to hand making them all?

The only two pics I could find of my mech and before restoration - sorry:
