Think some of the prices will change as maybe wrong or not hitting reserve. Was surprised by a few machines prices, mainly the few Mills machines and don’t understand why. The Bursting Cherry Melon Bell called Diamond Jackpot for some reason sold for more than examples sell for in the US. Same with some of the other machines. I always use places like Morphys realised price list as a good guide and a few Melon Fronts have sold in recent times including a nice version with side vendor for £1200. Was talking to a few others at the auction that it definitely has become worthwhile buying direct in the states even with plunging pound and transport costs. I remember a good condition Brooklands Racer selling in the same Morphys auction as my Coronet for $1000, I should have bought it.....

The Brooklands racer was the same machine I posted on here 8 years ago where it was supposed to have sold for £1500, even with the damage to the cash tray, which was a shame though and assume it had been dropped. Hardly surprising with the weight.

There were cheap lots though...the Fireworks machines were cheap, the cheaper red one even worked.

Nice to see different machines though.

Tree, I see people say this all the time, except being an auction price you have no way of knowing how high the winning bidder was actually willing to go!? I've made hundreds of bids over the years, mostly losing because I'm a poor-arse, and I think maybe 3 or 4 times I've later been able to meet or become friends with someone who beat me on something and find out how much higher they were willing to go. I've also come across tons of great deals that sold for super bargains that I missed spotting before the auctions. And I've won some of those bargains myself occasionally and almost every time they were well under my possible high bids.

This is true and I would bet if the same machines went in auction in 12 months they may fetch half the value......happened to be competitors there at the time, think same guy bought all the top lots....

An example of changing prices, the merchantman crane sold in March for £500 more than Sunday.

The chap who bought most of the nice slots also bid up the four reel Mills high top. Not seen him before at an auction. Maybe he is on here and would like to introduce himself. 🤔

That chap who bought all the Mills is from Dorset, i briefly chatted with him.
the merchantman fetched a low price because the top was broken , so i have been told?
