Hi,
Thanks so much for the advice. The one I have is the same as the one pictured. I noted some locks where side mounted and other top mounted...

PM, then what about the circa 1956/57 trade show photo page 84 of the Braithwaite Arcades book? Why would Parkers be displaying a bank of their wall machines along with Wurlitzer and Rockola jukes if not for sale??

Just reading about Parker's in the Arcades book it says "About 2000 machines were made in all, half of which remained in Parker's own arcades "

Any idea why 'Lucky 18' has 24 winning cups?

Thanks for that gameswat, not that I'll remember for next time, but good to have this info pinned here. He doesn't have a stab at Oliver Whales production numbers, but they must have been much higher.

It has the wrong top-flash, or the wrong door, depending upon how you look at it. !PUZZLED!
The Lucky 18 next to the Super '24' Cup here have their doors swapped back into the correct cases.

Just out of interest I pulled this photo from several trade show photos on the www.penny-arcade.info site and suspect it's one of those mentioned above.
