I was assuming it was 10 stop by the photo but enlarging the photo shows the strips to be out of line, so it could be 20 stop numbers but that's quite unusual I think.

seems a lot more slots in EH than Coventry this year.
Given that coventry is a week later, it was bound to be EH that had the most enteries!
I am sure there will be many venders trying to get "two bites of the Cherry" so to speak.
ie. putting into EH with a high reserve and when it fails to find a new home, having another go in Coventry with a lower reserve :lol: :lol: :lol:

Of course I suspect they would not have time to stick them in the next one, but given lots of the machines I see at the Elephant have been advertised many times over last year on various sites, I suspect they will be available still afterwards unless put in with lower reserves. I am struggling to find time recently to get machines in any auction,but last year I did submit to both with only a few having reserves, which were sensible. In fact only took one home out of 15 machines for a bandit that reached a stupid low level.......I guess you lot are not true gamblers ;-)

Hopefully I will be able to make the auctions, but working late prior, so we will see....good luck all with your submissions and your bidding !!THUMBSX2!!

I have always paid cash at the EH for winning purchases. I remember they used to add a surcharge if paying by debit card hence I pay with notes. Having looked at the EH t&c I see no mention of this now. Am I right in thinking this charge has now been waived??
Looks like this Sunday's auction will be well attended looking at the lots on offer....

I don't think it's legal any more to make a charge for paying by card. May be wrong but something telling me they can't do it any more. :cool:

Unfortunately, Coventry have closed their doors to any more submissions.. so anyone who wants to sell those machines that don't sell at EH will be out of luck! Not sure why Coventry didn't leave entries open till Tuesday after EH, just in case any late entries are submitted!

As usual …… every year in fact ….. we are still receiving lots, even today. Nobody has ever bothered with our cut off day before, so never really expect others to. Hopefully by the end of the weekend they'll be on the site. They include another 8 machines and will take us over 170 lots.
As for EH cast offs, I'm not sure of the advantage of trying to sell something that was on offer only a week before, I guess we'd consider it so long as the reserve was removed.

you would if you have ever tried to organise an auction and its catalogue :lol: If you closed the lots on Tues people would still be sending on Thursday !! :dammit:

it is illegal to add a charge when paying by card (which ,Im sure, is the only reason EH have stopped it)

I'm not going to the EH auction but if I were, it would be interesting to have seen the buyer mix. Obviously the EH has not had an auction for a year and don't have the usual batch of same old spares lots... A number of items for non coin op dealers and buyers. Even the Sun is out this weekend for them... But I am pleased the coin op enthusiasts will now have the option to attend either or both this year.
