This red-painted machine from the John Morley sale is identical to several of the coin-payout versions featured earlier in this thread, with one difference - it has only three win cups, where they have four. The middle cup is on a separate plate, suggesting a modification to reduce the player's chances. Three cups is standard for cigarette payout Circle Skills.

From another thread, a very early (Circa 1919) variant, Handan-Ni's Mystic Wheel:

And another German variety called Indra:

Can anyone identify this please?

Topic moved & merged - site admin.

Firstly, thank you for a fascinating web-site. I have a small collection of coin operated machines assembled over the years. Can anyone please identify this machine that says 'Made in Saxony.' It gives out small boxed prizes, which I have removed as they tend to be torn up by the machine when dispensed. I've used the search facility but only come up with 'Saxony Allwins' which don't appear to be the same. Thank you very much for any comments.

Circle Play, others will be along soon to laugh at me and ridicule me publicly.

Thank you all. Your identification of it as a Circle Skill and the links you provided took me to the very version of the machine I have! Much appreciated.

Following my first ever post recently, Badpenny asked...’What interests can you share with us?’
I think the most pertinent one is that I am a stereoscopic photographer and have always had an interest in coin operated stereoscopic viewing machines. I have about 4 of them in various conditions and once wrote an article for a stereo photography collectors magazine on them. Presumably if I want to post something about this I’d be better creating a new thread?
