I'm surprised no one answered the easy one; 20 is a Mills Extraordinary.
Oh, but that was named in the initial post, which also identified the one to its left as a Buckley.
The one on its right is clearly a Mills Silent Bell of some type, but I'll have to look harder to see which one.

Ah, no. I took a closer look, and I see the circular coin escalator. That means 21 is a Pace. Perhaps, though it's hard to tell, a Pace Fancy Front.

The 'Extraordinary' (20) appears to be the front-vendor version, judging by the straight sides.
Chicago Automatics referred to this as the 'Century Vendor'.

The Extraordinary was described by the company as "sold with compulsory skill controls", so I guess you were not allowed to trust to luck on a pull. :lol:

The 'ordinary' skill controls, which allowed the player to influence the spin, were satisfactory in some areas.
In others, the possibility of a 'chance' win coming up was not acceptable. The 'compulsory' skill buttons were to address this. If you allowed the reels to stop naturally, the payout was disabled, and all you got were your mints or gum.

The BDR Skill Adda also worked like this. You cannot win if you don't use the skill button.
