Hi Willborl :D , I have also been looking at this machine on Ebay, I thought it was French or German but I have just looked again and seen this label... it has what looks like a patent number at the bottom but it is to small to read :!?!: ... come on who knows what it is :?: ....... :tarah:

It's an Edgerton Manufacturing Co. Double Loop, a quite rare double event allwin with token payout.
Patent GB191009165, 1911.

Edgerton Double Loop identified at Staceys

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Thought I had better wait until the end of the auction, but the below machine finished today at Staceys Auction in Rayleigh Essex as most will have seen. Did go and view on Sunday and looked a nice original machine with nice oak finish and painted artwork at the top. Trouble is who made this, could not find in my books....finished a healthy £1120 inc commission with someone in the room....

It's the Edgerton Double Loop, Patented by CH Stapleton in 1911. You'll find a couple of previous sales records of these in the Arena - one selling at Christie's for £400 in 2006 and another at Coventry for £1500 in 2009. Nice to see these early wall machines getting a bit of respect again, even though it put it well above my bid.

I had the misfortune of underbidding again !!GRUMP!! , I was bidding on the internet so was being charged an extra 3% for the privilege, the buyer was on the phone. I have owned three of these but this looked to be the best one, nice unrestored, so went the extra bids. I liked these games as they are one of the few games with a left handed coin slot.

Whoever got it will be pleased, very original unusual machine. The only thing that looked newer maybe was the felt, but of course may have had light use.

Very unusual play with a flap at the top to allow the ball into the top loop controlled by the ball release. The balls were hidden in the double token vendors, so I was able to test the play. Shame I never took any pictures as the mechanism had an unusual chain driven feature for the flap and ball release.....only things missing were the key and top gallery. Even had the original cash tray...

Thanks TF, wish I had gone more now, but I hadn't viewed, but here's a pic of the mech.

Does anyone know what the ball size is for an Edgington Double Loop Wall Machine and what it's made of?
Thanks
