I saw this auction when it first appeared and was intrigued by the double coin play. I looked at the mech pic and you can see something is added to the upper end of the coin lever, so I assumed that this was added weight and would act as a counter balance to hold the first coin, then the weight of the second one would drop both. Simplest way is always the best, and this is how I'd try to solve the problem of two coins to play. The coin tube is not the size of an old Penny but much smaller.

Wow... just tracking some German bids on ebay & they are paying serious money for 1950s wall machines. Perhaps the time has come to send all the rotten monkeymetalplypeelingcrapoMats back home!

Not me; went for £958, which leaves room for a profit, based on previous sale prices.

I hate the way you have to be a forensic scientist to get a clue about who's buying stuff on eBay nowadays. The buyer, m***h has bid three times in the last 30 days. This bid is in the German category Sammeln & Seltenes > Automaten and the previous two in the British category Clothes, Shoes & Accessories > Men's, so I think the Payramid's coming home.

With the odd coinage and Euro 45 shipping, I guess it's still not a bad price. Too much for this bargain hunter though. I didn't get a bid in. :|
