A couple need stripping right down (nothing new there for most of these) and a rub down with the sporting life, but they will never look like they did when new.

Yes, certainly some quality looking items there, even ignoring the Bryans machines for a moment. I have my eye on one machine, which of course one has to keep one's self, but the machine so far I find most interesting/unusual is the Dual-Racer, what a wall machine, this looks great.....wonder who made it (BMCo?)

I suspect prices will again be high and I will walk away with no machines again, which is no bad thing has have been restricting myself of late. Even could not be bothered to bid on the below BDR at a recent auction with jackpot and original stand that sold for a £100

Handle, payout cup and marquee don't match BMCO. Reminded me of the Pool Tote in Arcades book page 5. And sure enough Dual racer is listed as a Quested machine from 1932.

Dual Racer is a nice machine, if you look closely it only has one slot. I was shown one of these a few years ago (could be the very same) but could not afford it at the time and if my memory serves me right, when you put in your penny, it is then propelled around the track in the right hand game and when the penny is caught in one of the rectangular cups, that in turn releases the ball in the left hand allwin - a really good game.
