Jockey Club

Postby coppinpr » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:42 pm

I rather like this machine, mainly because of the use of real jockey names. Can anyone tell me who made it (Jamiesons perhaps?) I'd like to think it dates about 1960 going by the jockeys used (and those that are missing), running now on 2np it was originally running on old half pennies which is rare.

This Jockey Club has to be made by Jamieson's. Despite what the seller says, this machine would have worked on old penny coins. None of these type were on half pennies.

I would agree with you about the 1d coins but, the photo from inside shows no room for 1d unless all the chutes have been moved, which seems unlikely.

Vintage coinop machine & Horse Racing graphics... The Right Buyer would pay a lot of money for that...

The distance is the problem. It's in Devon, or Cornwall, isn't it?
(That's Scobie Breasley, by the way, not Bobby Beasley, the Irish jump jockey).

The coin chutes look old penny to me, but the coin tube is sleeved.
Nice machine but it's located past the final pine tree then turn left.

Not the sort of thing to trust to a courier.

Would make a nice companion to Sweepstake which sold for £140 last June.

When the payouts on these don't work they are a nightmare. There may be others out there that can problem trace on them but the only person I knew who really got to the bottom of them was our own Stuart Dale. Even then it was torturous to watch such a mild and polite man turning into a snarling beasty. :shock:

It would have looked good next to my Steeplechase, but I viewed the same machine in January and it was not for me from what I saw.

Did you go to Devon just to see it?
