Dropcase flick-coin machines

Postby jimmycowman » Mon Aug 08, 2011 8:14 pm

What was wrong with this at only £166 on ebay? Looks quite old and rare to me.

Re: allwin type machine - Elite

Hi Jimmycowman,
I saw that one too, but let it pass as it seemed to be missing a few essential parts --namely a few brass parts that act as trips or levers to keep the coin wheels from spinning, as well as the jackpot release at the bottom (but maybe it's just the picture that's not clear enough...).
See the below picture of this Elite (taken from goldserie.de - link : Elite.

Have a good day. Christophe

That does sound cheap but as Christophe says, it's not clear if all the trips are in place. The other question would be coinage. Although these were made in Germany, some seem to have been built for the British penny, but not all, and it would not really be convertible. A local antique dealer bought one with a full compliment of pennies in place and then broke the glass. To be sure, with no coins and the trips in a bag, it didn't look very imposing and he was pleased to sell it to me cheaply. Nice game, but no good with thin or bent coins.

I'll let you know what the condition is when I get it delivered from Margate, here's hoping most of it is in place.... :tarah:

I'm beavering away on the elite, the case and door is now sorted and is a lovely solid oak finish with nickel plated metalwork, and the rust and cobwebs eradicated, but I'm not sure what the playfield finish should be. It seems to be just a coat of worn out green paint onto blockboard. I can't tell from the 2nd picture what the finish should be, so has any one any ideas?

I don't know about the Elite, but the versions I've seen have plain painted backboards. It has to be something that won't create too much friction against the coins.

Here's the Meyers version of this game. He improved it by putting the coin entry on the front but had to hinge the door on the left!

This example is called Blue Wonder from the Hong Kong Works catalogue.

Dropcase machines was the norm for almost 50 years in Norway. Came in all kinds of variations; from fully mechanical to modern electronic ones. Here you see my collection; or most of it anyway.
